After twenty-four years of training and serving both the World Aikido Headquarters and the Ki Society, Rod Kobayashi founded Seidokan Aikido and dedicated it to the study of Aikido as a whole.


In a Seidokan Aikido dojo the student and the instructor grow together. The student learns the fundamentals of Aikido from the instructor and the instructor gains a deeper understanding of Aikido by sharing his or her knowledge with the student. Through earnest, realistic, and sincere training, the students of Seidokan Aikido will learn the true meaning of Aikido.
