- COVID-19 INFORMATION -
Japan Post has decided to suspend all shipments to more than 120 countries. FedEx shipments are suspended worldwide. DHL has implemented a significant price surcharge and suspended shipment to some countries and updates partial suspensions daily. Therefore, Seido is no longer in capacity to promise that your orders will ship on the announce date below.
  • We recommend all customers to upgrade the shipping method at checkout if the displayed shipping method is "Japan Post".
  • We will email you on or before the announced shipping date if your order cannot ship. We may offer you a paid shipping upgrade if you want your order shipped via one of the few priority services that remains active with one of our carriers (FedEx, UPS and DHL).
  • Packages that are longer than 120 cm are subject to additional restrictions so all packages containing weapons longer than 119 cm are more subject to delays than others.
  • As of today, we are still able to ship almost normally to:
    United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Singapore, Finland, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Norway, Romania, Mexico, Denmark, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippines, South Korea and Slovakia.
    (This is not a guarantee that we will be able to ship, especially items above 120 cm in length, but we do not expect major issues for those destinations).
  • Other orders will be put prepared, packed and stored until one of the 5 cariers we are working with reopens the destination (you will be updated via email).

About Our Aikido Belts (Obi)

Based on the guidelines of the Kodokan (oldest Japanese standard), Seido belts are manufactured in Japan (learn more about the workshops on our Artisans Presentation Page). All our belts are approved by the Aikikai Foundation and the Aikikai logo can be added optionally on all belts.

Our range consists of two white belts, one lineup of colored belts, five black belts models, as well as 2 Iai type wide belts that you will find in the corresponding category. White and colored belts may be embroidered with a "non integrated" embroidery. The black belts can be embroidered either with a "non-integrated" or an "integrated" embroidery for ultra long durability. The belts can be embroidered on either end, at your convenience. Just choose your customization on the product page before putting the belt into your cart. You can refer to the page How to Choose Your belt or to our blog article 'A short guide on How to choose your Aikido belt' to help you make your choice of belt and to the "Embroidery Information" for more information on Japanese embroidery.
