What does Seido Juku mean?
SEI means truth, honesty and sincerity. DO means way, road or path to follow. JUKU means special or unique place. What does the Seido emblem stand for? The symbol we wear on the left sleeve of our gi is Kaicho Nakamura's family emblem, the plum blossom. The three circles enclosed by the petals represent LOVE, RESPECT and OBEDIENCE. These are the three underlying principles of Seido Karate.
