It is my honor and pleasure to be a member of the Uechi Ryu International Karate-Do Association (UIKA) under the leadership of Master Sensei and Chairman: Robert J. Campbell.
Jay Sensei, you may remember the first time I reached out to your association Uechi International, several years ago, on or around October 2010. Prior to that, I searched for Uechi Ryu in Hong Kong at least 10 years ago and could not find it. However, I failed to search for the website named Uechi Ryu International Karate Association. However, once I finally located the website, I contacted you the Uechi International President- Jay Salhanick.Jay sensei helped me by putting me in direct contact with the Greatest Sensei I have ever met – Robert J. Campbell. Once I met and started my training with Sensei Campbell, I realized even with all my past Martial Art training, it made me clearly understand that Uechi Ryu is the most special Karate style and my personal preference for my future study.
I had my first training with Sensei Campbell in 2011, which was 6-7 years ago.This training opened my eyes and I truly started to learn and understand Sensei’s insights of Tiger Uechi Ryu which includes techniques from Sensei’s Timing Hands concepts.
I am just a novice in Tiger Uechi Ryu with the Timing Hands concept, however, I truly love it…! For the Timing Hands concept itself, when one understands its principle and projection, it could be applied to any Martial Arts system.It could be included to increase the power and accurately along with its practical street wise techniques.
As for Uechi Ryu, we could have the Kata and the movements to practice, practice and practice alone and with our partners, and to have unlimited possibilities for the development of the arts.One of the most important aspects that Sensei taught me was to be open-minded in Martial Arts.
I am very lucky to have found you, Sensei Jay, by having you as the President of Uechi International and the guardian of the gate of Uechi International. You opened the gate to me and forwarded my email to Sensei Campbell. If it was not for you, I would have lost my great, great chance to meet and study with Sensei Campbell. Also being accepted as a member of this great association, I am sincerely grateful to you for all your help and support.
I am also very grateful for my appointment, as the Uechi International representative to Hong Kong. I will keep learning all the time and practicing my training. I hope one day in the future after my growth for years, I could humbly share some of my opinions in Martial Arts to all our Uechi Family in our Newsletter, or somewhere I could travel to as the Uechi International Representative and Ambassador.
Lastly, may I wish you and our entire Uechi Family Every Success along with Good Health Always.
Official Representative and Ambassador: Hong Kong (PRC).
