TRADITIONAL KARATE

Uechi-ryu

Japan 1923
Uechi-ryu is the style of Okinawa karate martial arts. This style is characterized by the high “Sanchin-dati” stand, the circular “mawashi uke” block, strikes by fingers and toes. These techniques were introduced when Kanei Uechi changed the kata, except the “sho ken” strike, the strike by the knuckle of the index finger and the “chumasaki” strike of the big toe. Uechi Ryu is also characterized by “kote kitae” (“iron shirt”) exercises that enable to overcome strikes with no visible consequences.
