    About the Club
    The Brandeis Seirenkai Karate & Jujitsu Academy teaches two traditional Japanese Martial Arts emphasizing practical, effective self-defense, fun and safety. Previous martial arts experience is welcome but not necessary. Now in its 31st year at Brandeis, Seirenkai (formerly called Kokondo) is the oldest continuously active martial arts club at Brandeis and is taught by a team of male and female internationally certified black belt instructors, including Master Dan Cohen '91, 7th Degree Black Belt, Master Steve Lisauskas, 5th Degree Black Belt and Sensei Ian Platt '96, 4th degree Black Belt. We emphasize realistic self-defense and always doing one's best--not competition or tournaments. More than 2500 Brandeis students have practiced Seirenkai self-defense techniques since 1987, and many have gone on to teach at other universities around the world. Please visit for more information about Seirenkai Self-Defense at Brandeis and visit our International Seirenkai Organization Facebook Page. This Brandeis club is sanctioned by the World HQ of the International Seirenkai Organization. For more information, contact us at:
