Send Kyoshi Tom to Australia!

Catonsville Seido Karate offers traditional training for body, mind and spirit for adults and children. Contributions from students and other friends and supporters help keep the program sustainable.

This April, Seido Karate Australia is hosting a four-day international festival. I've had the opportunity to meet many of our Seido Australia family when they've attended events in the US; now I'd like to return the visit.

Part of what makes Seido Karate special is that we are part of a world-wide family. Whether you're a large full-time dojo, or a small program at a local Y like ours, being part of the family helps us grow in knowledge and in spirit. But it takes some effort to maintain those ties.

I'm happy to be able to affordably offer Seido Karate through the Y...but that same affordability means that compensation is limited, and there is no funding from the Y for expenses like travel. (Or for my upcoming promotion testing in New York.)

Your contribution helps keep the Catonsville Seido Karate program sustainable, and will help me visit our far-off family to strengthen ties and to bring back new knowledge for our students in Catonsville.
