Gasshuku, which means “retreat,” is a great opportunity to experience many facets of Seido Karate. The weekend involves special outdoor training in a beautiful setting. Activities include evening and sunrise meditations to focus our minds only on the moment and emerge with a newfound clarity to reassess where we are in our lives.

The workouts can be rigorous, but the ultimate goal is the connection that we form with one another that makes Gasshuku special. And don’t forget the infamous “Seido games”! Every phase of the weekend will provide you with something new to learn about yourself and your peers. This event is open to all adult active members, as well as children (9 years old and up) who are accompanied by a responsible parent or guardian who is also an active Seido member.

More details on the weekend events will be coming soon. In the meantime, click here review the 2010 Welcome Packet and 2010 Itinerary for a taste of what may be covered over this very special weekend event.
