About Ryuei-ryu

"Budo is the exclusive private creed for personal development of body and soul and the defence of such"

(  Soke Nakaima family creed )

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.
