Okinawan Karate Clubs

Master White served as an officer in the American Okinawan Karate Association (formed by Shimabuku, Mitchum, Armstrong and Long), a member of the board of the Isshin-ryu Hall of Fame and is currently President of the Okinawan Karate Clubs, Inc. He has been teaching for over 20 years in Northville, Michigan, and has added classes in Novi, Ypsilanti and Plymouth. He recently began offering Tai Chi classes through Northville, and Cardio-Karate classes (aerobics) in Novi. Through his karate classes, he has spread Isshin-ryu to a new generation by promoting over 100 students to the rank of Black Belt. Mrs. Barb White, Master White's wife, is also a high ranking Black Belt.

In the 1970's, Master White competed in hundreds of tournaments, facing tough competitors such as Mike Stone, Nick Adler, "Sugar Bear" Bob Hogan, "Monster Man" Everett Eddy, Jim LaRocco, Joe Lewis, Benny "the Jet" Urquidez, and Shorty Mills (who was nearly seven feet tall and appeared in the movie Black Ninja). Before retiring from the tournament scene, Master White won over a hundred trophies and plaques, for both his fighting and for his kata performances.

He has trained 100s of students with many of them moving to the rank of Black Belt. We have many classes and times available and would love to have you join the OKC family!
