Seiyu karate was founded by Shihan Tats Nakamura in Vancouver. In 2017, after having trained in Kyokushin karate for 34 years, Shihan Tats decided to open his own karate style named “Seiyu Karate”. The word represents his own motto : Sei (faithfulness) and Yu (courage). It is a full contact karate style. We use this style of traditional Kyokushin karate training method in our dojo.
Seiyu karate is affiliated with I.K.O. Nakamura. The organization is operated by the two-time world champion, Sosui Makoto Nakamura. Its headquarters are located in Kobe, Japan.
