Covid-19 Tightened Safety Measures
Like you, we are also concerned with your safety and the safety of your child. At Shichida, we have always maintained strict measures to protect your family.
The latest Covid-19 tightened measures in S’pore will be for all our benefit and we as a business serving members of the public will be in full compliance.
Luckily for us all, the start of these measures coincides with our term break and only affects our first lesson in the following term. And since we have already successfully implemented online classes at the previous lockdown, we are ready to continue delivering lessons to your child without interruption.
We are glad with the cooperation and support from the Shichida community in the past, and urge that you continue to work with us in dealing with these added safety measures.
Let’s not allow it to upend our lives. Together, we will beat this virus.

Shichida 63rd Anniversary Joy
We Are Unique!
Prof Shichida Uncovered The Essence Of The Right Brain
In the mid nineties, a colleague of Prof Matthews, another research education scientist Prof Palmar introduced Prof Shichida in a brain conference “If Maria Montessori is a well known educator in the 20th century, Prof Shichida will be the one who will lead in the 21st century”.
"Current IQ Tests in the world have a ceiling that cannot measure the upper limits of Shichida-trained children"
- Jocelyn Khoo
"Hado Ability" is a function of the information circuit. Be it "Hado Reading", "Listening" and "Writing" or "Hado Memory", "Hado" or "Wave function" reflects the unique cellular platform where input is processed in the first few years of human growth. Even if the speed of input is faster than reading 10,000 books or reading 100 books in a single day, such an output reflected the quantity of input, home practice and is not based on number of books read. If a child is to be balanced in academic and non academic areas, to cram information in fast speed is heading towards the wrong direction.
The Shichida Educational Institute, which owns this trademark of Hado Reading™ in Japan and Singapore, has this to say: The potential of a child far outweighs the number of books read. Hopefully the reader will realize the heart of parenting from these testimonials.
Super high-speed speed reading method (later called Hado Speed Reading) was created by Makoto Shichida around February of 1992. Successively, on the February 1992 issue of the Shichida newsletter, he has written the following:
"With right brain speed-reading, one can read 200,000 to 1 million letters per minute; by flipping through the pages, one can put all the pages into one's mind in two to five minutes"
- Professor Makoto Shichida
He has given explanations about its existence and concrete training method in one of his books, “Issatsu-wo-roppun-de-yomeru-Hado-Sokudoku-Ho (Read a Book in Six Minutes with the Hado Speed Reading Method)”. In this book, he has defined Hado Speed Reading and touched on the fact that “four major functions of the right brain,” which he had been advocating for a longtime, played a pivotal role in this activity. In a Japanese TV program, in 1998, "Un-Nan-no-Honto-no-Tokoro" by TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System), children who are receiving the Shichida Method exhibited their speed reading ability.

All three of these categories (Lessons, Teaching Materials, and Lesson Programme) are the core of The Shichida Method. We are very proud to be recognised in these areas.
We appreciate the contribution all of the Centers involved to receive these awards and we are grateful for all of our loyal customers. We hope to continue to make strong efforts to offer the best education of the highest quality to all our customers around the world.

Chingay Parade 2019: The Shichida Super Family
Nurture, Love, Praise, Accept
your children for the superheroes they are
At Shichida, we often encourage and inspire our families to be the best versions of themselves. Every mother can be a Super Mum and every father a Super Dad. Every child with spectacular dreams and the spirit of a good heart can be the Superhero that he or she aspires to be. This was exactly what was portrayed with our Shichida Family as they strutted and danced their way down Chingay Parade 2019.
Families with children as young as 2 years old, parents, grandparents and our instructors from Shichida Singapore and Japan had a joyful time creating wonderful memories of being ambassadors of family love.
Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong honouring the 2019 Chingay Parade also caught up with our proud Shichida mom and daughter participant. Just like our foremost Shichida Values portrayed on our Chingay float, we hope to inspire every family to Nurture, Love, Praise and Accept their children for the Superheroes that they are.
