Kanei Uechi, son of Kanbun Uechi, founder of Uechi Ryu Karate.

In this section I'll be expressing my opinions on Uechi style Karate.

A Karate class should always include Kata, formal and/or informal Kumite and Conditioning.

Most classes begin with Warm Up and Secondary exercises.

A Karate class could also include some Stretching and Strengthening exercises, and Bunkai, Sparring and discussion on the History of the style.

Deep breathing is also a major part of the curriculum.

Not only will we be discussing different Uechi Ryu Karate subjects, we'll also be visiting some Uechi Dojos as we did with Ed Labrecque's Ipswich Martial Arts.

Kanei doing a Sanchin Thrust. Animation doesn't do Kanei Uechi justice. Though he still looks good.
