After the closing of the Horinouchi workshop who held about 40% of the production, the production capacity dropped and the situation quickly became critical.
Where are we one year later? Well, it's not looking good, not at all.
Welcome to the Seido 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 a decade ago.
We will mainly talk about traditional craftsmanship, Budo events in Japan, and of course, of our #BudoStudies work. #BudoStudies mainly focus on video interviews and demonstration, but you will also find some in-depth articles time to time.
Feel free to contact us if you have any question, wondering about a partnership or simply if you want to say hello to the team.
