Uechi-Ryu Karate in Hedge End, Southampton.
Uechi-Ryu Karate is one of a very few traditional Okinawan styles of karate that are still practiced today. Uechi-Ryu is practiced both in the UK and in numerous countries world wide. A Uechi-Ryu practitioner can be confident that he could visit any Uechi-Ryu dojo across the world and be able to fit in with the new club. Unlike so many other styles of karate, Uechi-Ryu is still taught the same across the world as it is in Okinawa; it has not been changed by numerous so called ‘experts’ who think they know better than the original Karate Masters.
This club is part of the Uechi-Ryu Karate Do Kenyukai Europe. The Kenyukai in Europe is headed by Master Takami Takayasu; one of the most respected Uechi-Ryu Masters in the world. The Kenyukai has numerous other geographical associations/clubs around the world with its Headquarters at the Dojo of Master Kiyohide Shinjo in Kadena, Okinawa. Master Shinjo is without a doubt an excellent Karate Master.
