Through an introduction to Japanese culture, our current Honbu students ages 7-14 will have an opportunity to experience the core values of Seido through a new lens. Our two-week day camp will incorporate a social-studies-based curriculum within guided museum visits, cultural experiences, creative projects, and extended training in Seido Karate. Each day will be packed with the richness of great learning as students explore the influence and connections of Japanese culture in our daily lives. Combining physical training with intellectual and creative experiences, our pilot program will open a new dimension for each student.

Under the guidance and leadership of Honbu’s own children’s instructors Kyoshi Susie Marples (certified yoga instructor RYT-200) and Senpai Gay Feldman (MS Museum Education, MA Art History), our students will have an opportunity to explore additional cultural activities including drumming, poetry, and the applied arts through the generous and creative efforts of our talented children’s instructors, all professionally recognized within their fields.

Each day will begin with a brief outline of the day’s activities followed by a morning snack. Our outings will take us to various neighborhoods, museums, cultural institutions, gardens, book shops, and artisan crafts people in Manhattan. Our program will culminate with a gallery-style exhibition presentation for Kaicho, Nidaime, parents, and caregivers.
