About this blog

The purpose of this blog is neither to advertise our products nor to use it as a marketing tool. Our true goal is to share with you all we’ve learnt since we began training in Japan and since we started selling, creating and designing martial arts equipment.

We will mainly talk about traditional craftsmanship, but also about Aikido events and demonstrations, the Dojos where we practice, the people who visit us, and maybe, from time to time, other Japan/martial arts related subjects.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any question, wondering about a partnership or simply if you want to say hello to the team. You can use our contact form, or leave a comment on this page.

Let us introduce our team and our offices:

The team below includes the entire Seido Co., Ltd staff, i.e. the Aikidoka of SeidoShop and the staff involved in the brand BudoExport.
If you are travelling to Japan and visiting the Hombu Dojo, don’t hesitate to look for us on the Tatami 😉
