Karate means literally ‘empty hand’ in Japanese – unarmed combat where your body is the weapon, and was developed in the orient several hundred years ago. Seido Karate, a traditional style, can help you to be fitter, better disciplined and able to defend yourself against great odds. Our school in Richmond, provides a structured course with qualified and experienced instructors. Classes are available for students of all ages and experience from the complete beginner to the Black Belt.
Being a member of the World Seido Karate Organisation means you’ll belong to a legitimate, worldwide structured organisation that has strict standards and syllabus, and overseen by the chairman (a Japanese Grandmaster) Kaicho Tadashi Nakamura. A world-renowned karateka (practioner of karate), Nakamura is a ninth dan (degree) black belt with over fifty years of experience in practicing and teaching in the martial arts. An expert in the use of oriental weapons, Nakamura has given numerous martial arts lectures and demonstrations in many countries around the world.
Sei Shihan Ino Macquirang (6th dan) heads Seido karate in Australia, based in Sydney. He trained with Kaicho Nakamura in New York until 1997 when he moved to Australia with his family. For more information refer to Seido Sydney.
