  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.  According to the concept of Okinawa Karate, our basic & final goal will be focused on Budo Karate.  In order to fit in with the proper attitude of being a Traditional Karate-Ka, our direction of trainings will be mainly about Self-Defense, and the balance of Mind, Body & Spirit.  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.  In 2022, Bill started to operate an another additional training place (Kwun Tong Dojo) to encourage our Uechi Ryu Hong Kong members to practice inside freely.

  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 Uechi Ryu Karate, and thus they can have a channel to grow up as a balanced, healthy and better person.  Our Hong Kong Branch preserves the Okinawa Uechi-ryu old knowledge of Kanei Uechi Sensei & Ryuko Tomoyose Sensei early passed to the America pioneers, incorporating Robert (Bob) J. Campbell Sensei his methods of Uechi-ryu applications which appreciated by the Okinawa seniors.
 
  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 Fuzhou Martial Arts, which has become an unique karate style with Southern Chinese influenced methods.

  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.  Uechi Ryu training is suitable for both males and females due to its well balance in hardness & softness.

  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.  * We are open-minded, and we practice step by step.  If a member who has any physical reasons, and not wishes to participate in some parts of training, he or she may feel free to communicate with the Instructor.
