A Company Run by Practitioners
A strong ethic at your service
In an age where the "product origin" has lost its meaning, Seido is the very last company that offers only 100% made in Japan equipment. All our products are entirely cut/sewn in Japan and all the textiles we use are made in Japan as well. This is the foundation of our brand, we do not compromise on quality.
Seido was created and is run by martial artists practicing various Japanese Budo in Japan. This allows us to get daily feedback on the mats and therefore, to have total confidence in the quality and relevance of our products, as well as in the very high level of our customer service. We consider all our clients as fellow practitioners.
Seido has its own high quality embroidery & engraving workshops. Embroideries are performed within 3, and engravings within 5 business days - we're the fastest in the industry. We also offer free professional name transcription. Learn more on our YouTube presentation video.
All Seido Hakama, Dogi and Obi (belts) have passed the Aikikai standard tests and therefore, can be fitted with the Aikikai logo (optional). The Aikikai foundation approval is a guarantee that our products comply with the quality standards set by Hombu Dojo Shihan and are perfectly suited for the practice of Aikido.
Seido simply offers the best service and the best cost performance ratio. It is no surprise that Aikidoists, like Christian Tissier, André Cognard or my brother (Issei Tamaki) are trusting in Seido for their equipment. Seido is bringing the best of Japanese equipment to all practitioners at a fair price.
