Re: Restoring and Revitalizing the Uechi Forums

Hi Cecelia: As the Uechi-ryu Forums administrator, I hope many participants will jump-in to help us with the rebuilding process. One of the first things we should discuss is the name. Should we leave it as-is or modify it to reflect forum's value as an archive of important and valuable past topics a...

Restoring and Revitalizing the Uechi Forums

With the popularization of Social Media, the need for the traditional Forums have been drastically reduced. Most of the martial art forums have disappeared and the few remaining have been relegated to archives of the past. However, even though I haven't been frequenting the forums very much, I do dr...

Re: Hello! I´m HEBER, from Brazil! Greetings!

Interesting clips by Kanei Uechi grandchild. The link you posted comes from an application in the Konshin kata. The video shows a block and grab technique. It is, in my estimation correct.

Re: Uechi-ryu Principles of Conduct!

We are busy re-building the old Forums and since many of you are stopping in, here at the "beginning", I wish to welcome you again. . . or perhaps for the first time to our all-new structure. Probably one of the most important feature of the Forums is the fact that I've not deleted any of ...

Re: Hello! I´m HEBER, from Brazil! Greetings!

Welcome to the Forums Heber and thank you for the question. You mention having some "doubts" about a wrist block and there are many blocks where the wrists are involved in the action. Of course, if a technique is not performed correctly is also a possible reason for it not working. I sugge...

WinterFest 2022

This is my first new post on the old Uechi Forums in years. Social Media redirected many of us from the coming here to discuss topics and explore other topics of interest penned by others. I don't know about you, but I am more than tired of Facebook and other popular programs of conversation and dec...

Re: Is this still a forum?

Bullcrap. . . Just that you guys are getting too old to fight with Glasheen. I see him on F.B., where I see him going head to head with younger and tougher opponents, all the while, projecting to millions of his fans, how smart he is. According to the pundits, you guys just weren't in his league! Of...

Re: Dynamic Tension in Sanchin

A difficult subject to explain and therefore was a major problem transmitting the information from teacher to student. I teach what Tomoyose drilled into me. Pull the shoulders down, using your lats. Hence the tapping of lats during sanchin "check". It is much easier to simply tighten ever...

Re: No more than 3 Sanchin / day?

I've always recommend 3 sanchin a day, as a great way to wake up in the morning. Along with a few other exercises, I've been doing this set of wake-up exercises, without a break, for about 10 years. Doesn't mean you can't do a few more at other times. Perhaps someone misunderstood my recommendation ...

Re: VHS Training Tapes

I anticipated this problem many years ago and purchased the first vhs - dvd copy machine back in the early 90s. Was able to transfer all my vhs tapes to digital. Many of them are now offered on the uechi store as dvds.
