Bill Mueller

8th Dan

In 1974 after several years of Judo and Karate training, only three months out of high school, Bill left for his first trip to Okinawa without even speaking the language.  His future instructor Nakamura, Ankichi didn’t know he was coming until he he showed up at the door step.

Since that time Bill has trained in Traditional Okinawan Karate used by Okinawan Samurai to defend their King and Families (much different than sport karate!) Bill has maintained a close relationship with Nakamura Sensei who is currently 93 years old.
