Tamashii School of Shotokan Karate has been established for over 45 years, most of that under chief instructor Kelvin Rayner’s supervision. Kelvin was graded by Sensei Shiro Asano, one of the remaining original great Japanese instructors. The Tamashii club is affiliated to The JKS and all instructors hold dan grades through this association.
The club began life as Seamless Tubes Karate Club, and trained at Seamless Tubes working men’s club in Wednesfield. Over the years, it has moved several times to accommodate its growth and development, and is now based at the studios of Coppice Performing Arts School in Ecclestone Road, Wednesfield.
