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!
Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received.
If you would like to learn more about Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu Karate, or if you want to find people to train with, please contact me. I am the head karate instructor for the Meriden Martial Arts Club.
Good to see you. Take a look at the level of your belt in all three katas. It should be level to the ground. I think a little more pelvic focus would greatly add to the posture.
Hey, you asked for it!!!!
Good tip. Thanks! Maybe Internet training will be a good thing to get going.
