[The River of Dream]
-  Back to the past years, the most popular style of Karate which rooted in Hong Kong, was the Japanese Goju Ryu, and thus Bill was also one of the members, as well as he was an active Black Belt member of a dojo.  At the beginning years of the dojo, the training mode was mainly focused on the Old School Kumite, along with Kobudo as a supplement.  Some years later, Bill gradually developed the intention to look for the Okinawa Karate-Do, because of the charm of Budo Karate.

  In 2010, Bill was fortunate to have an assistance from Sensei Jay Salhanick, the Vice Chairman of Uechi Ryu International Karate-Do Association (Uechi International), then he started to be allowed for making contacts directly with Sensei Robert (Bob) Campbell, the Chairman of Uechi International [Ref. 1], and finally be accepted as a private student since 2011.  Therefore, Bill starts training mostly in the Home Dojo & the Garden Dojos under Campbell Sensei.

  Apart from learning Martial Arts and the knowledge of Street Smarts, Bill was also enlightened & awakened by Campbell Sensei his different dimensions of teaching.  The mindset of Bill has been changed, and he also becomes an open-minded person as a result of opening the horizons.

  Based on the similarities of Short Hands techniques of Southern Chinese Martial Arts and the attraction of Traditional Chinese Weapons, Bill started studying Pak Mei (White Eyebrow) Kung Fu under Sifu Li Shek-Lin [Ref. 2] since 2012, and becomes the 7th Generation.


[The Tiger's Lineage]
-  Although Campbell Sensei has already retired from active teaching, he specially teaches Bill to further master the "Tiger methodology" & "Timing Hand" [Ref. 3], as well as to review & strengthen his practice of "Sanchin", "Seisan", "Sanseiryu", the three core Kata of Uechi Ryu Karate as a package of key training in 2017.

  At the same year, Bill passed the examination of qualifications of Black Belt Shodan & Instructor of Uechi Ryu Karate-Do, and becomes the First ethnic-Chinese Instructor in both Hong Kong & Macau.  In addition, Bill was appointed as the Official Hong Kong Representative & Ambassador of Uechi International, to carry on the mission of the development of Uechi Ryu Karate-Do in Hong Kong.

  In the Summer of 2019, Bill passed the Nidan test, and officially started to open a New Hong Kong Dojo (Open Group Class) for teaching Uechi Ryu Karate-Do in Hong Kong.  According to the concept of Okinawa Karate, our basic & final goal will be focused on Budo Karate.  In order to fit in with the proper attitude of being a Traditional Karate-Ka, our direction of trainings will be mainly about Self-Defense, and the balance of Mind, Body & Spirit.  In the same year, Bill was further appointed as the Official Macau Representative of Uechi International.

  For spreading the Uechi Ryu Karate-Do in Hong Kong & Macau, Bill's dojo is also committed to pass down the arts to the new generations, for those who have the heart to become an instructor, and to open their own dojos in the future.  Furthermore, Bill sets up the Uechi-Ryu Generations Funding (UGF) Scheme to offer Free Tuition for the teenagers (with financial difficulties) who are seriously looking for learning Traditional Uechi Ryu Karate, and thus they can have a channel to grow up as a balanced, healthy and better person.  In the beginning of 2020,
Bill paid attention to the need of flexible training time & place, and considered the Budo's concept of "Karate and Dojo are everywhere", then he also established the Uechi Ryu Karate Yuboku Dojo.
