Just wanted to say HELLO!...Have been signed up on the website for awhile....history wise....Uechi-ryu-Hancock St. Boston. Ma. 1967. First instructor- Victor Best, then Neville Kimbrell, Bob Campbell (he was a rokkyu when I started)...kids class.
Remember Victor Multi, Fred Tong, Jack Summers and others, not to exclude George Mattson (as well as John). After a couple of years,developed other interests. Came back in the mid '80's - John Zachistal (Woburn, MA) out of Walter Mattson's group for a year ...then Warren and Michael Chaille out of Melrose, MA- got as far as sandan and had family concerns...recently returned to Melrose..now Bill Adams instructor...glad to be back...

I'm impressed!

How come you didn't come to SummerFest and introduce yourself to all your old teachers??? :)

Looking forward to seeing a lot of you on our forums Jim.

Sometimes have to work weekends and Summerfest happened on one of those weekends. Look forward to contributing to the forums and also learn a lot...some of the videos helped to dust off the cobwebs a bit although I couldn't believe how much muscle memory was retained ( too bad I couldn't say the same about conditioning!)
