Welcome to the United Southern Isshinryu site. This site is dedicated to all Isshinryu martial artists living in the South. Some of us are affiliated with an established Isshinryu organization and some choose not to be affiliated. The important thing is we all practice Isshinryu karate and we respect others that are traveling down the same chosen path.

You will find information on dojos, tournaments, and seminars on this site. Galleries from recent events and promotion information are available as well.

The seventh annual invitational Kyu Fest will be hosted at St. Gabriel Catholic Church on Saturday the 26th of September by United Southern Isshinryu Karate (USIK) of Charlotte NC. Following a Black Belt Meeting and photos sessions, and introduction of VIPs.  The tournament begins promptly at 1100 (11 AM). Last year's event featured over 160 competitors competing in 63 divisions, including Kumite (free fighting), empty hand and weapons kata (forms). Additionally, over  250 spectators (mostly direct family members) were in attendance.  The event ended promptly at 1400 (2 PM), followed by lunch.

Since 2009, this tournament has grown steadily and served as a means not only to support a unique venue for a kyu ranks (under black belt), but also an educational atmosphere in which to train and develop newly promoted black belts, as well as instructor and mid-level black belts in the nuances of logistics, judging, and operating a safe and efficient tournament.
