About the event:

All martial arts and combat sports athletes have always dreamed to take part, at least once in their life, to a true World Championship, an event that was not the expression of a single federation, but the vast majority of existing .

This dream is now reality thanks to WTKA that has succeeded in unifying 38 World Federations and sixty per cent of the whole movement !!!!!!!!

Where others had failed due to selfishness, greed, short-sightedness and lack of planning, WTKA, it right to be said, has achieved a little great sports miracle.

The one of Carrara therefore, it is worth repeating, is no longer the World Championship of an unique federation as it always has been until now, but the overwhelming totality of existing !!!!!!!

It ‘a masterpiece of foresight, generosity and friendship.

On 30th and 31st October 1st and 2nd of November it will be, therefore, an event which will enter in the history of martial arts, with the organization of the biggest tournament in the world, where will participate 120 countries and 10,000 athletes !!!

Summer Seminar 2015 – Sensei George E Mattson UK Visit June 27, 2015 - June 28, 2015

Sensei Lee Adams' message:

We are very honoured to have Sensei George E Mattson visit the UK for our event. George was originaly taught by Ryuko Tomoyose as a young American serviceman for several hours in the evening after his duties on the military base in Okinawa only training occasionally at the Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do headquarters by Kanei Uechi and his other Master students. He was promoted to 1st degree black belt before leaving Okinawa at the end of his service in the military. Ryuko Tomoyose had studied previously with the founders of the other two major Okinawan Karate styles before starting lessons with Kanei Uechi finally. A few months before becoming too ill, Kanbun Uechi returned to Okinawa and taught at his son’s karate school in Nago, Okinawa, Japan. During that time, Ryuko Tomoyose studied with Kanbun Uechi and his students there. Ryuko Tomoyose therefore has the distinction of being one of the very few that was a student of all three founders of all three of the major styles of Okinawan Karate, Kanbun Uechi, Chojun Miyagi, and Chosin Chibana.

mattson tomoyoseGeorge E. Mattson returned to Okinawa many times and arranged to travel with his students to Okinawa often. Through his continued travel to Okinawa and the seminars sponsored for Okinawan masters to travel to the USA George E. Mattson has been studying under the majority of Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do masters of the 20th century. As a result, he has been among the first to be promoted to each degree of black belt up to his current rank of 10th degree black belt in Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do in the USA.
