The Seido Juku Symbol
The contours represent the plum blossom. The central part shows three circles. The plum blossom is the family crest of the Nakamura family. The three circles represent the aims of Seido Juku: Sonkei, Ai and Jujun - Respect, Love and Obedience.
"To respect each other, love each other, believe in each other, and support each other, forming one ring."
The name of our style has a very special meaning. "SEI" means the Truth, Honesty and Sincerity and "DO" means the Way Of.
Patches on our Gi (Uniform)
The rectangular patch translates to Seido Juku, where Juku means Special Place. It is worn on the front left side of our Gi.
