The Uechi-Ryu Style

This system of karate, Uechi-Ryu, is named after Kanbun Uechi (1877-1948) an Okinawan who studied the Shuu Family Style of martial arts in China.  After his death, Uechi's son Kanei and a committee of senior students refined and added to the Uechi-Ryu system in the late 1950s and early 1960s.  The expansion of the style was based on the core and foundations of Kanbun Uechi's teachings.  Uechi-Ryu stands apart from other martial arts systems in its application of effective, common sense techniques aimed at winning a fight, not in excelling at the "sport" of karate.  Uechi-Ryu embodies the spirit of the Dragon, strength of the Tiger, and the grace of the Crane.
