Taido


 


"The way of the body"

Taido is a Japanese Martial Art. It is influenced by old samurai spirit but is constantly developing to meet the needs of the modern society. It is not a martial art which moves along a one dimensional line in executing punching or kicking techniques but one whose techniques are delivered by changing the body axis and balance. It is also characterized by the use of elaborate footwork in changing the angle of attack and by the use of one's entire body in the martial art.

Taido was created in 1960, by Seiken Shukumine, a great Master of Okinawa Karate Gensei-Ryu. Currently there are Taido Associations in Japan, Finland, Sweden, France, Netherlands and Australia.
