The Aikido Dojo Seishinkan

[Sei Shin Kan Kalligrafie]

Sei – purity, Shin – spirit or heart, Kan – hall or room: Hall of the Pure Heart, is the meaning of our dojo's name. Many dojos have names with such a meaning.

As the name Shimizu begins with the sign , (Shi – pure or clear, Mizu – water: clear water), several dojos in Tendoryu Aikido have a name that begins with the same symbol. Seiryukan (Hall of the Pure Style), the Dojo of Peter Haase in Lüneburg; and Seikikan (Hall of the Pure Ki), the Dojo of Marijan Tole in Rheinberg and Neukirchen.
