Greetings from Maryland

Hi all,

I'm new to the forums and to Uechi-Ryu, but so far the reading is very interesting. 8) I am currently practicing/learning in Rockville, MD.

I previously studied Koburyu, which is derived from Uechi and currently headed by Kincho Takashi Keicho.

I look forward to learning more about this style.

For future reference, does anyone know of a dojo in Iowa?

I thought I was familiar with all the Uechi methods. Is there a website that describes this system and the founder?

Looking forward to reading more from you on these pages.

Welcome, Nicole.

George, I did a little web sleuthing. Ko-bu ryu looks to be a spin-off from konan-ryu.

Thanks, Mike.

It's been so long since I practiced that I forgot the title of Konan-Ryu.

As I learn Uechi Ryu I'm finding the styles are more similar than I thought they would be. I'm having to relearn some of the stepping and technique, though.
