History of Uechi-Ryu

 

The Uechi-Ryu style was founded by Sensei Kanbun Uechi after his return from China in 1910. While initially he refused to teach, he eventually gave in. Uechi-Ryu is a half-hard, half-soft style, focusing on open and closed hand techniques. The core of the style revolves around a kata (fighting-form) named Sanchin, which aids in muscular development, and tests the spirit.

The Goal of Uechi-Ryu Sacramento

 

Uechi-Ryu Sacramento seeks to teach self-defense along with developing the character of all of our students. Students are taught basic techniques, forms (kata), and sparring techniques. We practice both point and full-contact sparring in order to develope both speed and power in our students. Most of all, students are taught discipline, respect, and the ability to maintain an unyielding resolve.
