Tamaki’s unnamed father is the head of the Kawazoe dojo.
He is a kind and loving parent who would do anything for Tamaki Kawazoe. However, he believes that he is too old to truly understand her and has a hard time knowing how to express himself around her. He doesn’t want to appear too doting but he also doesn’t want to appear too distant, so most of the time he ends up appearing straight-faced to her.
While he does trust her to take care of herself, he can be a little overprotective, especially if Yūji Nakata is involved. He suspects that the two may gain feelings for each other and worries about what may happen.
Despite him having difficulty connecting with her, he does notice how much more open she becomes as the series continues. He even has an easier time speaking with her. When she closes off again after losing to Rin Suzuki, he is troubled and insists that she should do whatever makes her happy again.
He and his wife, Tsubaki Kawazoe, were both skilled in kendo and started to train Tamaki at an early age. Unfortunately, Tsubaki died when Tamaki was young, leaving him to raise her.
