Based on the principles of Taekwondo and Aikido, Seikido is a unique martial art that uses proven techniques of both disciplines to provide the student with an effective style of self-defense. Practicing kicking, blocking, punching, grappling, throwing techniques, and break falls are essential parts of our basic training. We also learn patterns (an arranged sequence of kicks, blocks, and punches), sparring techniques, and self-defense. Practitioners of this martial art will attain harmony of body and spirit, learn self-defense, gain self-confidence, and discover “the way of the art.”
About the President
This years co-presidents are Liam Martyn and Tunyalux Langsub. Liam is a third year Western student taking Leadership. His involvement with Seikido began eight years ago and he considers it one of the most substantial parts of his life. It has improved his work ethic, health, and being a part of the Seikido family makes for a very supportive and involved lifestyle. Interestingly, Liam can juggle four balls, recite pi to over a hundred digits and ran a business for two years. Tunya is a second year Science student at Western. She began practicing seikido in first year and has grown a passion for the enthusiasm and family-like community seikido offers. For her, Seikido is not only a great physical workout, but it also exercises her leadership, discipline, and time management skills. Though a science student, you can catch Tunya taking pictures (@tunyalux on Instagram), painting, singing, and cooking.
