SUPPORT FROM OKINAWA
Senior Instructors and 7 time world champ and President of Ryuei-ryu Karate, Tsuguo Sakumoto-Sensei(center), showing their support in our Chiyo Sempai T!
CURRENT KARATE WORLD CHAMPION
It's been incredibly encouraging to have received the direct support of such seasoned karate instructors in Okinawa.
I bring Okinawa Ryuei-Ryu to Texas with their highly esteemed dedication and tradition in mind.
Perfect practice makes perfect world champions and although discipline is a vital part of learning our martial art- it is also the reward.
