DVD The Power of Uechi Ryu, English 60 min.
DVD The Power of Uechi Ryu, English. An exciting video that shows the extreme power of this unique style of Okinawan karate. In 1897, an Okinawan by the name of Kanbun Uechi (1877-1948) traveled to China and studied martial arts. He was instructed in a typical tiger-crane style known as Pangai Noon. In 1948, the style was renamed Uechi Ryu by his son Kanei Uechi (1911-1988). Kanei continued to teach the style after his father’s death. Today, Uechi Ryu is very popular in Okinawa. It is a style typified by powerful techniques, highly effective self-defense applications and dynamic strength building kata. This video also shows the rugged full-contact sparring Uechi Ryu is known for. Attention: Low image quality because of non-professional recordings! 60 min.
