Grand Master Ansei Ueshiro
Master Ueshiro came to New York City in 1962 and continued to teach traditional Okinawan karate until he passed away on May 7th, 2002. His students have preserved the art of traditional karate across cultures and borders, including our Hong Kong karate training, expanding the legacy of Master Ueshiro over time.
