Seido offers the fastest service in Japan, that's a fact. But we don't do magic either and the international situation has imposed some limits, so to avoid any bad surprises here is our schedule for December!
Custom products (embroidered Belts/Dogi, Iaito, etc.): Order before November 22nd and you will be delivered before Christmas (some products may have longer production times, please double check the shipping date in the cart when ordering).
In-stock products shipped via FedEx, DHL, or UPS: the last chance to get items with embroideries/engravings delivered before Christmas is December 14th.
We usually deliver in 4 days in Europe and North America. Our entire team will be focused on preparing your orders, and all orders placed on the 14th will ship on the 15th.
We'll be open up until December 27th, then closed from the 28th to January 4th, for our winter holidays.
Finally, please understand that our carriers don't employ magical reindeer, and Santa Claus isn't working at customs. Hence, on-time order delivery cannot be guaranteed 100% so please don't wait until the last minute to order!
The Seido Staff is composed of Japanese and non Japanese martial artists of various backgrounds, Aikido, Judo, Kendo, Iaido and more. Our collaborative articles are the result of the work of our staff members having a formal academic background in Japanese and Budo studies, and several decades of Budo practice.
