Group Photo from May 21st 2017 Tenshinkan Junior Tournament

Welcome to the Tenshinkan Karatedo Federation UK website. Here you will find information about our style of karate.

Our style of Karate was founded in Japan by Kancho Mamoru Miwa, Sensei 10th Dan. The Martial Arts have been Kancho Miwa’s life long work and although he specialises in Karate and is the founder of Tenshinkan, he is also highly qualified in other Martial Arts. Kancho Mamoru Miwa has been appointed by the Japan Karate Federation as the Chief Judge and Representative for this organisation for all Saitama Prefecture, which is the largest Northern Prefecture of Japan. Kancho Mamoru Miwa’s most recent visit to the U.K. was in June 2008.

The Founder of Tenshinkan Karate Federation U.K. is Kyoshi Robert Kane, 8th Dan.  For over 50 years he has promoted and dedicated his life to karate.

If you would like to find out more about our style of karate, please visit one of our Clubs, or email

Attention All Tenshinkan Members, Juniors and Parents.  Thanks for your patience waiting on us announcing the return of  Karate classes to physical training.     We have been waiting to see how things are proceeding with the Scottish Govt Tier lockdowns and what they mean for us.    It is quite clear, I'm sure you will agree, that we are not getting back to normal training this side of 2021.       Of course nobody is happy with this scenario, but we have no other option for most clubs to continue training on line with ZOOM, or not at all.     

As a Federation we use School Halls, Mason halls, Community halls, Gym halls etc, all of which will be subject to new Covid 19 rules and regulations, and all with different problems.  

We have a duty to maintain safe training for everyone and failure to comply and follow rules put in place may result in Clubs being closed down once again.   

Please watch out for information from your normal Club Instructor about when your Dojo might re-open.

Keep your eye on texts, emails and What's App information and check back to our wesite here for regular updates.    Join us on ZOOM if you can.
