Congratulations Dean and Mike on receiving your Shodan (1st degree) rank!
Dean completed his promotion yesterday morning with a spirited two hours of fighting Senior Seido Blackbelts and was awarded his blackbelt by Kaicho. After being away for quite a few years, Mike completed two years of training in order to be rewarded by Kaicho with his original blackbelt which he received back in 1992. Please be sure to congratulate them when you see them at the dojo.

January 9, 2011 - Kagami Baraki
At Kagami Baraki this past January, students enjoyed a spirited workout followed by a meditation lecture by Kaicho. His new year message this year was "Ta Shon Ji Shin". Ta Shon, meaning "to respect the person next to you at all times." Respect for others will be bring respect for yourself. Ji Shin, meaning "to believe in yourself." As Seido karateka we train hard for physical advancement. But we must also remember that our training is spiritual and energetic. We train to build confidence in ourselves not only to face physical challenges but also life's difficult situations. When faced with a serious problem such as illness, loss of a loved one or lack of finances due to job loss; we must remember our karate training. Seido teaches us to face our challenges not run from them. The Bushido spirit is instilled in all Seido Karateka and we must always trust that our karate-do is strong and will help us in dealing with any difficult situation.
