Welcome from
Grand Master Angi Uezu, 10th Dan 
Founder, Chairman Emeritus
and Special Adviser of the OIKKA


Welcome to my official website and online training center.  I am very happy that modern technology and the assistance of Grand Master Chase and his officers have enabled the Okinawa Isshinryu Karate and Kobu-do Association and me to continue to teach, advise and guide my students throughout the world.
  It is our intention that this website be a vital reference for schools as well as an invaluable source of information to teach, train and further all students’ knowledge of Isshinryu Karate and Kobu-do.’ 



In Memorium, Grand Master Jim LaRocco

April 5, 2014 -  It is with a heavy heart I announce the passing of Grand Master Jim LaRocco - a dear close friend and colleague as well as a great karate man and true master.  Grand Master Uezu often describes his student and friend with one of his highest compliments, "a karate gentleman."
