Seiyu Karate

Shihan Tats Nakamura founded the Vancouver Kyokushin Karate in 1992 after moving to Canada from his native country, Japan. The club has grown from its modest beginnings to become one of the most prominent Karate clubs in Vancouver. In 2017, after having trained in Kyokushin Karate for 34 years, Shihan Tats established his own style named Seiyu Karate. The word represents his own motto: Sei (Faithfulness) and Yu (Courage).


Vancouver Cup Karate Championships


The event began with a modest start in 2000. Each year it has seen great success and growth by pulling together more than 100 competitors from BC and Alberta and giving them the opportunity to gain experience and develop new friendships. We are excited to bring back the tournament this year after three years of waiting due to Covid-19.
