The histry of Ryuei-ryu
Ryuei-ryu originated with Ryu Ryu Koh in China and Nakaima Norisato from Naha studied under him, returned to teach “ Ryu no Waza “ in Okinawa. After Norisato came Kenchu, Kenkoh and Kenji.
Until Kenkoh Ryuei-ryu was a style that was exclusively taught to family – all the masters were descendants of Norisato - and closed to all outsiders. Kenkoh made the decision to open the teaching to non-family members. Tsuguo Sakumoto was the first non-family member to become master. Ryue-iru became widely known when Sakamoto became world champion.
Ryuei-ryu continues to produce world champions to this day.
