Additional Information about Seido Karate and our Program

Boston Area Seido Karate is part of the World Seido Karate Association.  Seido Karate was founded in New York City in 1976 by Kaicho Tadashi Nakamura. It is a traditional Japanese style of karate that integrates physical skills training with meditation for spiritual and emotional benefits. The Seido headquarters, Honbu, is in NYC. There are Seido schools 10 U.S. states and in 14 other countries.

Boston Area Seido Karate strives to be a school with diversity of heritage, languages, gender identities, religions/beliefs, ages, economic groups, and body types.

Tuition is $25/month. Students may attend any classes they are eligible for (based on age + belt rank).

You can find more information, and fast updates, on our Facebook page.

Carmel’s karate training and teaching includes a strong emphasis on inclusion and social justice. She is experienced with making classes and workshops accessible to people who may have thought they wouldn’t be good at karate due to age, gender, body type, limited sports/athletic background, or physical limitation. Carmel herself has trained with a mobility impairment in one leg throughout her entire martial arts career so she is well-versed in finding modifications or accommodations.
