Osu Seiyu students!

We are pleased to announce that Seiyu Karate will be once again holding a summer camp. It will be our sixth installment of this exciting event. Each year, we strive to improve our lesson plans based on the survey responses we collect.

This year's camp will dedicate more time to light sparring and Kata practice than in previous years so that participants will have plenty of opportunities to spar with a wide range of partners and to learn a new Kata and its applications.


The number of participants is again set for full capacity. The three-day camp will see our students train, learn, eat, and play together. The camaraderie you will feel is incredible.

We are excited to go back to the beautiful Loon Lake. Join us to share great moments and create everlasting memories again! Osu!
