  先生、お誕生日おめでとうございます!

--------
Happy Birthday Sensei!

Arthur and I were celebrating the birthday of our Lifelong Teacher - Sensei Robert (Bob) J. Campbell.

This is the first time that we can finally have a birthday party event with Campbell Sensei here in Hong Kong.  We were super excited.  We enjoyed the whole night together for around 6 hours.

Sensei is Always our Sensei From Day One.  We are very thankful for having Campbell Sensei to teach us the Life of Martial Arts...  We feel like we are Family.  Cheers for many more years to come, Good Health Always Sensei!

  Uechi-Ryu Karate home training in Hong Kong, Mr. Bill Ng under Sensei Robert J. Campbell.

Little sharing:

  In 2010, I contacted Sensei Robert J. Campbell through the referral of Sensei Jay Salhanick.  After a year, I was and I am still always lucky enough to become a private student of Campbell Sensei, then I started to train with Sensei directly and mostly in the Home Dojo & the Garden Dojos.  Apart from studying Martial Arts, I was also awakened & enlightened to open my horizon widely, as well as to learn how to become an open-minded Karate-Ka.

  At first, I learned from Campbell Sensei about his Street Smarts Self-Defense, and the three core Kata "Sanchin", "Seisan", "Sanseiryu" of Uechi-Ryu Karate, along with his "Tiger methodology" [Ref].  In addition, I then further study the system of Okinawa Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do as a lifelong practice, for passing down the arts to the new generations.  Today, I still keep reviewing the methods of Uechi-Ryu Karate and focusing on targeted training, according to the guidance of Campbell Sensei.

  Because of my personal preference and for self-defense, I practice Uechi-Ryu Karate for years.  "Born to be small, may be easily targeted by the criminals".  Having "Street Awareness", doing exercises and practicing Martial Arts, are my daily activities.  Two years ago, there were five trackers following me & my travel companion on the street next to the night market in Bangkok of Thailand, and we had avoided the threat safely.  The efforts you put in, may not be responsed immediately;  however, if you can always equip yourself, it may bring you a positive result or reduce your loss, when you need it one day.

Bill Ng and Hokama Sensei (Kobudo) [May 2019]

Okinawa island, as the birthplace of karate, you can meet some new faces here, especially the karate lovers & practitioners who come from different countries, kaikans, dojos all around the world.

Attending the class, most will focus on the study, and care very less about other's skin color, political views, or any personal values & beliefs. Many come for the same thing - Karate, or and Ryukyu Kobudo.

Sensei Tetsuhiro Hokama shared me one of his open-hand applications of Sanchin, and arranged his associate instructor Nicolas Baldwyn-san (left in photo) to practice with me for several techniques of Bubishi.

"Young man, jump higher!" Hokama Sensei gave me his instruction during the another practice - Nunchaku.

Before leaving the dojo, Hokama Sensei looked at me and a western lady, soon he made a joke. Hokama Sensei smiled, talked to the lady about "maybe you can find a boyfriend here", then he turned his head and asked me "do you have a girlfriend now?".

Good memory.

Uechi Ryu Sanseiryu [May 2017]

Campbell Sensei always tells us that we are free to learn from other teachers under mature respects, or to join the trainings in any groups and dojos, as following the path of Budo.

Before meeting Shimabukuro Sensei (middle in photo) and his son Daiki (left in photo) in Okinawa, I mostly focused on the studies of the three katas of Sanchin, Seisan & Sanseiryu, along with various applications of Uechi Ryu techniques for self-defense taught by Campbell Sensei.

It was truly great to train in different dojos during the Okinawa travels. Most of the senseis and senpais are very nice, yet their forearms and power are super strong. You need to well-prepare your conditioning before the visits.

After my returns to Hong Kong, Campbell Sensei keeps teaching us more and reviewing my practice day by day, even more often than the past years. I believe those years were the tests of patience to us, like the way how Kanbun Uechi Sensei taught Sanchin to his students.

The Lineage of Uechi-Ryu International]

上地流国際 世系圖
  The predecessor of Uechi Ryu International Karate-Do Association is Uechi Ryu Karate Association Hong Kong, which was authorized to be established in 1980s, and we are the first Uechi Ryu Branch in Hong Kong.  Besides, we are also the legal martial arts organization under the registration of the governments.  Our Chairman, Sensei Robert (Bob) J. Campbell, who is publicly recognized as Hanshi & Kyudan of Uechi Ryu Karate-Do, and he was appointed and issued two charters from the direct authority of Master Kanei Uechi in late 1970 & 1980s, to be the Uechi Ryu Official Representative of both Philippines and Hong Kong.  The first Uechi Ryu Karate Dojo in Philippines was located at the prestigious Manila Polo Club. For Hong Kong, the first Dojo was located at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium of Happy Valley.

  Mr. Campbell was the New England & Canada Karate Champion, and a member of the New England Karate Team. Mr. Campbell taught uniformed officers, body guards & security staffs for several countries, as well as most senior members of governments. During this time, Mr. Campbell was given a name of "Gold Leopard" by a senior officer, due to his fierce eyes & fast, cat like speed.

  Afterwards, Bill Ng, a private student of Sensei Robert Campbell, passed the examination in 2017 and becomes the first ethnic-Chinese instructor in both Hong Kong and Macau, who holds the black belt qualification & teaching certificates of Uechi Ryu Karate-do.  In addition, Bill was appointed as the Official Hong Kong Representative & Ambassador of Uechi International, to carry on the mission of the development of Uechi Ryu Karate-do in Hong Kong.

  In 2019, Bill passed the Nidan test, and officially started to open a New Hong Kong Dojo (Open Group Class) for teaching Uechi Ryu Karate-Do in Hong Kong.  In the same year, Bill was further appointed as the Official Macau Representative of Uechi International.

  In the beginning of 2020, Bill paid attention to the need of flexible training time & place, and considered the Budo's concept of "Karate and Dojo are everywhere", then he also established the Uechi Ryu Karate Yuboku Dojo.  In November 2020, Bill is honored to receive Sensei Robert J. Campbell his old Uechi-ryu karate black belt (since year 1969) as a token of one of the next direct generations.  In 2021, Bill passed the Sandan test.

  For spreading the Uechi Ryu Karate-Do in Hong Kong & Macau, Bill's dojo is also committed to pass down the arts to the new generations, for those who have the heart to become an instructor, and to open their own dojos in the future.  Furthermore, Bill sets up the Uechi-Ryu Generations Funding (UGF) Scheme to offer Free Tuition for the teenagers (with financial difficulties) who are seriously looking for learning Traditional Uechi Ryu Karate, and thus they can have a channel to grow up as a balanced, healthy and better person.

--------
  The Uechi Ryu Karate is one of the Three Major Styles (Goju Ryu, Uechi Ryu, Shorin Ryu) of Okinawa Karate, and it was formerly named 流唐手術.  Uechi Ryu is transformed from the source of Southern Chinese Martial Arts, which is combined with the intensive and unique elements of "Dragon, Tiger, Crane".  The Uechi Ryu Karate emphasizes the short hands techniques & control skills for close quarter range, which is good at the Kung Fu of Fingers, Palms, Shoken (小拳), Uraken (裏拳), Tettsui (鉄槌), Hiji zuki (肘突), Sokusen geri (足先蹴), etc.  It focuses on the martial arts concepts of "Natural Hard & Soft" (硬軟自在), as well as "Piercing Eyes and Fast Hands" (眼精手捷).  According to the story told by Sensei Kenwa Mabuni (the founder of Japanese Shito Ryu), Sensei Kanbun Uechi (the founder of Uechi Ryu) described that 流 referred to the rapid speed in its style.  Apart from learning the Self-Defense, the Uechi Ryu practitioners could strengthen their body & willpower, and keep their mind healthy during the years of practice.

  We, Uechi-ryu International (HK Branch), follow the concept of Okinawa Karate - Self-Defense for the Basic and Final target of our training in Budo.  Our course will be mainly focused on practicing Uechi Ryu Karate-Do, and we also concern about the Balance development of Mind, Body & Spirit, in order to fit in with the proper attitude of being a Traditional Karate-Ka.  The Culture of our Dojo:  Respect each other, Overcome the ego, Non-competitive & Unaggressive.  It aims to maintain a peaceful and friendly relationship among the members, as well as to maintain a healthy and good learning atmosphere & environment of the dojo.  "The Secrets reside in Training the Heart", we attend to the Balance of Safe & Practical, and pursue the ideal "Shin, Gi & Tai" (Mind, Skill, Body) under a series of Uechi Ryu Karate practice.
