Grandmaster Trias began training in 1942 while serving in the U.S. armed forces on the island of Tulgai in the British Solomon Islands. His first instructor, Master Tung Gee Hsing, was a master of the Chinese systems (Hsing-Yi and Pakua). Master Hsing had combined systems with Okinawan Shuri-te Master Choki Motubo to form Shuri Karate Kempo (later changed to Shuri-Ryu).Grandmaster Trias returned to the United States in 1945, and was the first Caucasian toopen a commercial karate school in the U.S. in Phoenix, Arizona in 1946. He also founded the first karate organization - United States Karate Association (USKA) in 1948, and promoted thefirst American karate tournament in 1955. Grandmaster Trias continued to travel around the world, both as a teacher and a student, until his death in 1989".
