-  Our Ambassador, Official HK & Macau Rep., Mr. Bill Ng (Nidan), is the First ethnic-Chinese Instructor in both Hong Kong and Macau, who holds the Black Belt qualification & Teaching Certificates of Uechi Ryu Karate-Do.  Besides, he is the 7th Generation of Pak Mei (White Eyebrow) Kung Fu.

  Bill was born in 1988 with a Soul of Warrior, he has a great interest in Kung Fu & Karate since his childhood.  From the past to the present, Bill explores different Martial Arts, such as: Karate-Do, Kobudo, Boxing, Muay Thai, Traditional Southern Chinese Martial Arts (Hands & Weapons), Iaido...  And now, he puts the Highest Spirit on studying Uechi Ryu Karate-Do and Pak Mei (White Eyebrow) Kung Fu, according to his personal preferences.  Thus, Bill has a deep understanding of both Chinese & Japanese Martial Arts (Hands & Weapons).


[The River of Dream]
-  Back to the past years, the most popular style of Karate which rooted in Hong Kong, was the Japanese Goju Ryu, and thus Bill was also one of the members, as well as he was an active member of a dojo.  At the beginning years of the dojo, the training mode was mainly focused on the Old School Kumite, along with Kobudo as a supplement.

  Some years later, Bill gradually developed the intention to look for the Okinawa Karate-Do, because of the charm of Budo Karate.


[The Lifelong Teachers]
-  In 2010, Bill was fortunate to have an assistance from Sensei Jay Salhanick, the Vice Chairman of Uechi Ryu International Karate-Do Association (Uechi International), then he started to be allowed for making contacts directly with Sensei Robert (Bob) Campbell, the Chairman of Uechi International [Ref. 1], and finally be accepted as a Personal student since 2011.

  Apart from learning Martial Arts and the knowledge of Street Smarts, Bill was also enlightened & awakened by Campbell Sensei his different dimensions of teaching.  The mindset of Bill has been changed, and he also becomes an open-minded person as a result of opening the horizons.

  Based on the similarities of Short Hands techniques of Southern Chinese Martial Arts and the attraction of Traditional Chinese Weapons, Bill started studying Pak Mei (White Eyebrow) Kung Fu under Sifu Li Shek Lin [Ref. 2] since 2012, and becomes the 7th Generation.


[The Tiger's Lineage]
-  Although Campbell Sensei has already retired from active teaching, he specially teaches Bill to further master the concepts and techniques of Martial Arts, as well as to focus on the Internal applications of Mechanics, Inner flow, Projection of the Tiger methodology & Timing Hand [Ref. 3], and to review & strengthen his practice of "Sanchin", "Seisan", "Sanseiryu", the core Kata of Uechi Ryu Karate as a package of key trainings in 2017.

  At the same year, Bill passed the examination of qualifications of Black Belt Shodan & Instructor of Uechi Ryu Karate-Do, and becomes the First ethnic-Chinese Instructor in both Hong Kong & Macau.  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 the Summer of 2019, Bill passed the Nidan test, and officially started to open a New 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.  At the same time, Bill was further appointed as the Official Macau Representative of Uechi International.

  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.
