Ryueiryu 200 Years mermoiers seminar

Ryueiryu has strived its way through the history of karate. It has started its journey since 1819, founded by karate master Kenri Nakaima. From a mystic to one of the most popular karate style, mr Sakumoto has devoted himself in promoting Ryueiryu around the world. We were fortunate enough to participate its 200th anniversary seminar with all the karate fellows around the world.

During this 3 day seminar, karate practitioners around the world gathered in Okinawa and spent our days practicing basics and katas such as Heiku, Paiku, Anan, Anan Dai, Ohan, Ohan Dai and Pachu. We were trained by the Japan national team. Sweat, command and laughter were echoing the seminar stadium. We have also met various famous karate master such as world champion Ms Sandra Sancez and Mr. Damian Hugo.

Apart from our hard work, we have also spent a bit of our time enjoying Okinawa. Our activities included: the diving section in the famous Okinawa Blue Cave, dining with famous Okinawa dishes (especially Ishigaki beef), visiting magnificent beaches in Kouri Island, and last but not least, shopping and fireworks. We have enjoyed our time with friends and family. It was truly an amazing summer.

We would like to give our greatest gratitude to Ryueiryu Ryuhukai, which organized this brilliant seminar. We have learned so much from it. For sure, we will work hard and help to spread the spirit of Ryueiryu to our younger generation. As Mr Sakumoto has taught us: Never give up!

St. Joseph primary school karate demonstration
Click to view full article
Click to view full article
St. Joseph's Anglo-Chinese Primary School held an extracurricular performance on 19 March 2019. The newly established Karate Club also took part in it.

Having practiced for only 12 lessons in the past school term, 32 P2 students were already able to demonstrate skillful techniques in synchronization during the basic technique and Kata performance.

The highlight was of course the finale performance of board breaking. Due to their young age and lack of experience, the first 4 students could only break the wooden board with the help of their sensei or with a second attempt. When it came to the last student, the hall fell into absolute silence. [name], the little boy wearing black rim glasses, gave one hard hit with full concentration and broke the board into two good pieces! The crowd burst into thunderous cheers and  the boy just stared at his own fist in disbelief.

We hope this precious experience will inspire our students to strive further for excellence and do just better and better in future.

My sons, James and Luke, have participated in the Shibuya Springtime Karate Tournament, which was held in Japan on April 29th.

We have been told that the level of Karate in Japan is way higher than Hong Kong. Therefore my sons started intensive training with other participants a few months before the tournament and endure it as often as possible. We did everything we can do for the tournament but we were not sure if we are ready for it or not.

Once we arrived in Japan, we were very fortunate that Takekawa-Sensei from Seishinkan Tokyo HQ and Nakao-Sensei from Seishinkan Seishincho Branch gave us last minute intensive training for 2 days. The 1st day training was done by Nakao-Sensei. This training was done with Nakao-Sensei's apprentices (children). My sons were overwhelmed by their spirit and fights at the beginning of training. However, as Nakao-Sensei identify my sons' weaknesses unerringly and made correction, their Kata became sharper and Kumite became more technical straight away. The 2nd day training was done by Takekawa-Sensei in a tense atmosphere. After the training, my sons seemed to be very motivated and psyched up for the next day.

The day of tournament, we were surprised to see a large number of participants at the venue. I believe there were around 1,000 participants. My younger son, Luke's age group itself had 70 players to fight with. It was definitely the biggest ever tournament we have participated in. We could feel and see the seriousness and tension in each Japanese player’s face and every move they make. It was absolutely amazing to see how powerful and precisely they move. Honestly speaking, I thought the chance of my sons to win even at the 1st round was very slim. However, James has made it to 2nd round = best 26 for his Kata (P5 boys category), Luke made it to 2nd round = best 35 for his Kata (P2 category) and 3rd round = best 11 for his Kumite (P2 category). I was very proud of them that they fought very well against such high level strong opponents.

My sons also participated in another Karate tournament in Hong Kong, which was held just 2 days after the Japan tournament. My boys used all the experience they have gained from Japan in this tournament.  As a result, James won 2nd place for his Kata (10yrs old boys category) and Luke won 1st place for his Kumite (7yrs old boys category).

Participating in the tournament and intense training in Japan was very meaningful and profitable to my boys. Their awareness and motivation for Karate have changed and their techniques have improved. I hope they focus and pursue Karate in the years to come. We sincerely appreciate this opportunity and experience. Thank you very much for Takekawa-Sensei, Nakao-Sensei and Andrew-Sensei.

Ryueiryu karate  seminar

Date:11,12 Mar. 2017

Venue: Okinawa karate kaikan

Teacher: Master Sakumoto tsuguo , Master Tomishiro azusa ,Master Shimizu yuka 
             Kiyona ryo ,Kinnjo arata, Uemura takuya( WKF team kata champion)

Aim: Ryueiryu kata's special trainning method, How to win at tournament etc.

Member's compoistion.

My name is Joe Shiba and on March 11 - March 12,I gained an extremely valuable experience of attending a Karate seminar and practicing under the Karate World Champions in Okinawa.   On the first day we went to where we would be practicing for the next 2 days and greeted Sakumoto Tsuguo Sensei. After we had greeted Sakumoto Sensei he introduced us to the teachers who we would be training under for the next 2 days. Next we all sat down and listened to Sakumoto Sensei give us a short lesson on the long history of karate and Ryueiryu. Straight after the short lesson all 100 people grouped up and started a warm up. As it was a brand-new dojo the floor was very slippery and there were many people tripping over. Once our bodies were warmed up we all sat on our knees and were taught the correct stance and ready position for Ryueiryu. To put this into practice the world champions gave us a correct demonstration of aaran. Their Kata had incredible force and detail in it and every movement was incredibly refined. This is a sight I will never forget.   After the amazing demonstration from the teachers we split up into groups and we practiced with individual champions and a variety of kata’s. Each champion had given us detailed explanations of how every move had meaning to it and that the key to improving Kata’s is to remove any unnecessary movement. We finished the first day by presenting out improved Katas to Sakumoto sensei to critique.   We started the second day of lesson by greeting Sakumoto sensei and the importance of sideways movement in Ryueiryu. We warmed up the same way as the day before and we were all sweating already. On the second day we focused heavily on every movements meaning and we practiced with those in mind. The champions teaching was very delicate, precise and focused on our problems. From this I learnt what I had to focus on in my future training and I feel from this seminar our skill of karate has improved greatly. Finally we had all grouped up, did our Kata under Sakumoto sensei’s orders and finished an amazing 2 days. I would like to thank Sakumoto sensei and all the teachers for this amazing experience I will never forget.

Dylan Thomas 

From 11th and 12th of March some of my teammates and I were in Okinawa, Japan  for a karate seminar. We had a valuable privilege to meet the world karate champions!  

Sakumoto Tsuguo sensei taught us about the history of rureiryu karate, how they started this form of karate and when they were born. We also had lots of fun doing kata training with the kata champions. The various katas we did were pachu, heiku, paiku, kururunfa, suparinpei, sepai and more.

I was really grateful to get to train in such a massive karate dojo in Okinawa for the these 2 days! We were all set ready for such a big training session for 9 hours. When the champions and the grand master Sakumoto sensei and other champions like Ryo Kiyuna, Arata Kinjo,Takuya Uemura and many more fantastic world karate champions came we introduced ourself and gave our presents to them showing our appreciation. I was very nervous to train with them.

We had to pick one kata to start with, then from there we kept on rotating around until all katas were complete. They showed us the details and every move after mover for each kata which took a long time but in the end I felt like it had helped me a lot. After every kata all groups had to present it in front of Sakumoto sensei which was a bit nerve wracking but I still thought it was a great idea. I would like to go there again if there is another chance. I would like to work on my shiko dachi but other then that I think it was a great opportunity and experience to train with champions and learn about the history of rureiryu

Tsang"s composition

My name is Hazel. I participated in the 2016 Hong Kong Tournament last Sunday. I won two prizes—1st runner up of both events of Kata and Kumite

In that morning, we started with the kata competition. There are many participants and everyone wanted to compete for the champion. So, I must concentrate and pay full attention to my performance, or else I would be fail in this event. Surprisingly, I did not get nervous at all and got the prize finally.

After the lunch, we had to wait for a long time for my 2nd event---Kumite. I was a bit tired, but I knew I must have enough warm up exercises before that. Later, the game started and I had to fight in response to different players. Unfortunately, I got hurt after few rounds and I was feeling anxious. My mom worried about me too. But, I told myself that I couldn’t give up. At last, I got another prize in this gamel.

I have to thank Andrew sensei and Michael sensei for giving me quality training. I will try my best and well- prepare myself in order to face the up-coming competitions next year.

My name is Hazel, Tsang Tsz Yau. In the past summer holiday, I took a karate lesson in Tokyo 聖心館 Dojo on August 30, 2016. My instructor was Nakao Sensei.

Firstly we bowed in at the beginning of the class and I introduced myself to everyone. Then we started with warm-up exercises in which we were required to do the basic techniques repeatedly. In the Kata training, we had to move each step in response to Sensei’s rhythm and everyone there was closely focused on all the instructions.

After that, we put on the full gear for Kumite training. All the kids in this dojo had good techniques with rapid and accurate response. They were all very powerful, so I had to pay full attention for every fight.

Before the class, I was so nervous as I knew that there were many new faces. However, my fright disappeared after the training. I found that they are so welcoming and friendly. At the same time, all students in the dojo were good fighting partners with serious attitudes and focus. I am so thankful to have teachings from Nakao Sensei. She is an awesome teacher who enriches my karate knowledge. I hope I could meet Nakao Sensei and her students in the near future.
