Taido 50th Anniversary

January 23, 2015, is the 50th Anniversary of Taido. Half a century has passed since Seiken Shukumine, Saiko Shihan, the first Soke of Taido, presented Taido to the public. Unfortunately he is not able to share this happy moment with us, but I am sure that he would be proud of what Taido has become. At the same time, he would ask us if there weren’t anything we could do a little more and a little better. Let’s make it our mission for the coming half century to make Taido even bigger and better. To all Taidoka over the globe, Happy Birthday.

The major celebration will be held in Ishinomaki in September, 2015. (More information on this event will follow).

Below follows a list of all new Shogo Title & Higher Rank holders who passed their shinsa in 2014.

News from around the Globe

On Sunday, September 16, there was a Budo Gala in Lübeck, Germany, where Taido was presented. Thanks to help from visitors from Sweden, Denmark and Bavaria it was a success. Taido is still fairly unknown in many parts of the world, but thanks to events like this the word is spreading.
Hope this help the club getting new members.
