The Whitehaven Tora-kai club instructors are Donald Simpson (3rd Dan) and Tony Mccully (1st Dan)


Grading examinations are held twice a year in Moresby, allowing students to progress to their next belt. These examinations are conducted by Kenny Taylor (6th Dan), the chief instructor of the Tora-Kai network of clubs.


Club members have access to The United Kingdom Traditional Karate Federation’s two large residential courses in Windsor (Spring Camp) and Edinburgh (Summer Camp). Members also have access to the courses run by Sensei Kawasoe for the STKF courses in Scotland (we usually go to Perth to combine training and socialising with old friends).
