The legacy of Tamas Weber

Soke Tamas Weber is the founder of Sanshin Kan International and is a well-known personality in Martial Arts.

His Karate experience and knowledge are unique and unmatched by most living practitioners.

Soke Tamas still leads daily training sessions at the Stockholm Hombu Dojo. He instructs karate and military strategy globally in many training camps and seminars.

Tamas joined the French Foreign Legions at the age of 16. He got injured while serving in the war in Algeria. While the doctors wanted his leg to be amputated, Tamas refused and resumed his Karate training in Paris, which played a big part in his rehabilitation. 


Tamas travelled to Japan and trained under Sensei Chojiro Tani, one of the direct heirs to Shito-Ryu. After returning from Japan, he opened his own small but successful dojo in Paris, continuing his association with Sensei Tani and Sensei Yoshinao Nandu, of Shotokan fame.


Tamas travelled to Stockholm in 1969 to teach karate which became his home and base for Sanshin-kan Karate. He received his tenth Dan in 2005 from Sensei Toshio Kaneta.

In 2009, Tamas became the first European to be inducted into the Master's Hall of Fame, USA.

The knowledge and experience are now being preserved and spread by his students through the tradition of Shito-Ryu Sanshinkan.
