World Seido Karate
Founded by Kaicho Tadashi Nakamura in 1976, World Seido Karate and its katas are now practiced as far away as Europe, Asia, New Zealand, and South America. A traditional form of Japanese karate, seido karate builds lithe, powerful bodies through rigorous study of the form and an emphasis on zazen, or meditation. The 15,000-square-foot NYC headquarters often hosts visiting members from international branches, making it not uncommon to see South American black-belt students talking about proper form or Australian students recounting stories of unsuccessfully sparring with wallabies.
