Grant Campbell 師範, Shihan, is the principal instructor and director of this organization. Grant Campbell became one of the senior ranked and respected foreign martial artists in Okinawa, Japan as well as the only non Asian martial arts teacher to be ranked in the top rankings of the Masters division at the most prestigious Martial Arts event in the world, the World Karate Championships held in Okinawa, Japan. Campbell began his study of the martial arts in 1970 with encouragement from his family. Campbell has spent extensive periods of time in Japan since his youth.

As a young man, Campbell participated in many martial sport competitions of various types, achieving recognition from virtually all major recognized bodies internationally. Despite his accomplishments in the sport aspect, Campbell’s real talent is in the teaching of the martial arts. An international competitor on various USA teams for nearly 20 years, as well as winner of hundreds of competitive awards including state, national, international and world championship titles in Karate and Full Contact Fighting, Campbell Sensei now devotes his time currently to studying and teaching the martial arts in addition to continuing post graduate studies. Campbell Sensei holds a degree in Oriental Medicine and is knowledgeable of many of the ancient practices in traditional martial arts as well as modern interpretations. Although previously a world class competitive martial arts athlete, Campbell Sensei follows the direction of his teacher, Nakaima Sensei and no longer supports the current trends in Sports Karate. Campbell also continues to serve as an advisor to several martial arts organizations.

NAKAIMA SENSEI'S DESHI

Throughout his life, Nakaima Sensei has taught many students various arts, but has only accepted Grant Campbell as uchi deshi (inner chamber or personal disciple) in Ryueiryu.  After years of dedicated study and practice, he is now considered fully trained and a guardian of the Ryueiryu system. He is the first and remains the only fully trained student of Nakaima Soke.
