Seishin-Kan Website Update

Posted by Michaela Pellman on 21 February 2011

In order to improve our services to Seishin-Kan members and our affiliated dōjō and kenkyūkai, we created a completely new website exclusively for our members and launched it on 01 September 2010.  This more contemporary, cleaner, and more easily navigable website template was created by Node Thirtythree Design, whose website now unfortunately appears to be inactive.  In addition, we acquired a more robust content management system that allows us to better manage, maintain, and update content on the new site.

Other than general information about the Seishin-Kan and its affiliates, most of the new site will be password-protected content and services exclusively available to members of the Seishin-Kan and its affiliated kenkyūkai.  Some of the features we are adding to the site are discussed in the article below.


New and Enhanced Website Features and Functions

Posted by Michaela Pellman on 21 February 2011


Some upcoming major site upgrades and improvements coming in 2016 include:

  • Discussion boards exclusively for Seishin-Kan members that are fully integrated into the site, rather than hosted off-site.  No more banner ads!
  • Greatly improved online store and shopping cart functionality to facilitate the processing of member discounts.
  • Improved photo and video integration to permit more online instruction and member interaction.
  • Full Service online Learning Center to provide a wide range of interactive online learning opportunities and experiences  for Seishin-Kan members

Pellman Sensei has announced that the new website will include a major new online service available to both members and non-members of the Seishin-Kan, but he refuses to reveal exactly what this newest feature will be -- only that it is being developed in Area 51 by former NASA scientists.

The scary part is, no one's really sure if he's kidding or not!
