Nathan Hannan 8th Kyu, Green II
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 email@example.com

Guess who ? Answers by e-mail to
Monifieth Dojo still manages a junior member grading despite Covid 19.
While the pandemic lockdown continues, Tenshinkan UK clubs are still trying their best to keep up with some form of training.
Monifieth Dojo Instructor, Sensei Tom Spasic has now passed Nathan Hannan to 8th Kyu, Green II.
Nathan has been practicing regularly with his Instructor Sensei Tom and worked hard for his green belt.
Well done Sensei and congratulations to Nathan !
We all hope with the production of a vaccine to fight Covid 19, that some time next year all our Dojos will return to some form of "normality".
Meantime, keep up with your individual training and log on to Zoom regularly with the Chief Instructor, Kyoshi Robert Kane on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Action from the 2017 Junior Tenshinkan Tournament
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.
Coronavirus - when will my Dojo re-open?
