I seriously didn't see it on the home page. Need a bigger font so my aging eyes can see it.

We could start by talking about camp, beginning now...so what's in store for this year George?

Like Maloney is fond of saying: The idea is to have more fun that any of us is entitled to, along with training. :lol:

Wonder what he always meant by it :?:

Hi Van Sensei.

There is so much history at GM's summer camp’s, we can all talk about it for hours on end. We can talk about how GM has started so many of the martial art traditions in the United States, we have all come to know and love, and I might add, many take for granted.

I personally encourage everyone to attend GM’s summer camp.

GM’s Summer camp offers:
•First and foremost – FUN, in a friendly environment.
•Reconnect with old and life long friends.
•Meet new friends.
•Learn Uechi and other related MA systems, from renounced masters.
•Select from a variety of martial art activities.
•Select from a variety of none martial art activities.
•Get to train, workout, and meet many of Uechi Ryu’s living legends.
•Who could ever forget the year Master Kanie Uechi SR. came to the camp.
•Lets not forget the night time party’s.
•Lastly – again – FUN!

Van sensei, you are right. There is so much history and so much to talk about. I for one am looking forward to this years camp. I was very disappointed that I had to miss last years camp. Due to my new position, I have to do a lot more travel. Some times I just can not get out of it, or reschedule it.


Take care,

Jay Sal

Thousands have attended the camp over the years and I've certainly promoted it heavily every year. So. . . it is kind of nice to hear others relate how they have both enjoyed the weekend and learned a lot as well.

No question that many very impressive teachers have honored us with their presence and their knowledge. If you attended every camp, would you be able to list all of the incredible people you met and trained with?

Hope to see you all this year.

Excellent Jay...all there in a nutshell.

I know not everyone will want to participate in all seminars for whatever reasons...and that is fine.

But just being there and watching what other people do, and how they present it, is an eye opener.

And nothing really beats the excitement of getting together with old friends, sharing the festivities, in such a nice area of the Cape, hunting a good glass of scotch :lol:

People who don't attend, have confided in me, that afterwards it felt like having been left out of a great party.

The laughter and 'bumps' are there for all to enjoy until the wee hours of the mornings.

The student I brought to help with the kids camp last year just couldn't believe he was so fortunate to attend.
He wanted to clone himself so he could get to 2-3 classes at once.

In one of our Thompson's Island camps, we had a soccer game made up of two Uechi teams.

I wonder if we have any Uechi soccer players today that are any good at kicking the ball around without running out of breath.

If so we could come up with a couple of teams. :D

But I doubt we will have enough people who can transition from Sanchin to soccer, with the exception of Art Rabesa's daughter who is an excellent soccer striker.

She could run circles around most guys at camp as they wait around for the oxygen tanks to show up :lol:

Then we have Bridget who will kick everyone's butt. :P

That sounds like a challenge!

Friday evening after dinner. . . on the football field. . .

Canada vs the USA

And I suspect we will have a few players from Burmuda and a couple from Europe who will be "drafted" into either the USA or Canadian team for the evening.

Sounds like fun! Lets hear from those of you who wish to participate.

Given the popularity of the game these days, due to the world cup eliminations already in progress _ and the ‘games’ next year…. A good soccer game at camp would be very popular.

Canada vs. USA sounds good, and as you said George, we can draft players from Bermuda to even out the teams…I am sure the ‘Big Boys’ from Bermuda will know how to play the game.

We should be able to gather up two full teams of 11 players each, a Goalie, full backs, midfielders, and strikers up front. We could do with fewer players but 11 on a team are ideal.

Soccer is very demanding aerobically … on the legs …body and on the head because of air strikes.

Hopefully we can motivate prospective players to start a little training.

The ideal would be to also have two linesmen and a referee, who need to be in shape because they will have to run the field matching the player’s action.

We all will need several soccer balls, a ref whistle and some ‘EMT’ standing by…as people who think they are conditioned in body and legs will find out the soccer field to be a different world.

Does the Maritime have equipment we can borrow?

George, can you run a front page ‘call to soccer action’ requesting commitment and players’ positions on the field. ?
