Grand Master Shintoku Takara was introduced on Okinawafs major newspaper gOkinawa Timesh on September 25, 2015h.

The Okinawa Times / Sep.25,2015

Grand Master Shintoku Takara (85 years old, Hanshi 10 Dan) has dedicated himself for traditional succession of Uechi Ryu Karate Do for more than 60 years. He always has gentle eyes, but once putting Gi on, his eyes turns sharp. His strong emotion given out from his eyes and his sharp movement completely whelmed us. Mr. Takara showed us a Kata with full of spirit although he told us he was now practicing Karate just for his health mentenance.

He knocked the door of Master Kanei Uechifs Dojo when he was 20 years old. He was making a living by working in U.S Military Base at that time and also putting himself in hard training of Karate every single day. He says gImmediately after WW II, only my enjoyment was getting together with Karate friends every day. Then when I was realized it, more than 60 years passed alreadyh with gentle smile.
He has taught Karate in Koza and Futenma, and also made effort to generalize Karate Do even in many countries. He has brought up hundreds of students all over the world. Today, he is practicing Karate in his sonfs Dojo once in a week and training basics and Kata by repetition in his house. He says, gSpeaking of which, I havenft had so much serious problem on my body such as back, legs, etc. it may be because I have kept practicing Karate.h
A great grandson gKokih was born just 3 months ago. He was secretly expecting to work out with Koki in the near future.

<Address by new president>
To members of Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do Association and all of Uechi -Ryu Karate -Do family in the world.

It has been 4 years since the new organisation was established. I believe the organisation has became firm year by year. It was proved by many efforts of members in such as seminars, grading test, tournament and so on.
What I would like to do as president now is to inclease Uechi -Ryu members all over world. I would like to ask many my friends, whom I have met for my past 45 years, to get together. Especially I am expecting new members to join us from South America and Europe who have been long time friends of mine.

Our organisation is concentlating the concept of Soft &Flexible and Muscular &Hardness. I intend to develop the organisation 3 years by 3 seasons. It means the first 3 years will be a new start to me, next 3 years will be a progressing stage and a final 3 years will be my conclusion season. It may sound abstract, but I will make it concrete. I would appreciate it if you would cooperate with me for my goal.

Before closing my address, I would like to express how I feel sorry about big loss of Jack Summers Sensei in the United States. He was very special and must be remembered as the man of merit for the development of Uechi Ryu Karate Do in the United States. Please accept my deepest sympathy. May his soul rest in peace.
