As Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu students know, Master Uechi brought three katas to Okinawa from China after returning to his homeland. We tend to focus on these katas more than others for good reason: they are the foundation of our style, and everything we do stems from studying them.
If you want to improve your karate, it’s best to start with your understanding of these katas–especially sanchin. Here are my current interpretations of the three main katas. Constructive criticism, as always, is greatly appreciated!
