Learn About Uechi-Ryu Karate - Katas, Techniques, etc.

Uechi-Ryu is one of the major schools or sub-styles of Karate. This Karate sub-style was formed in early 1900s by Kanbun Uechi, an Okinawan martial artist.

According to Uechi-Ryu Karate Academy, "Uechi-Ryu Karate was founded by Kanbun Uechi, an Okinawan who studied and taught in China, and brought the art of Pangainoon (as it was called there) to Japan and Okinawa. Kanbun Uechi was born on 5 May 1877, in Izumi, a small farming village on the northern part of Okinawa. Throughout his youth, he mainly worked to learn to farm the land of his ancestors, and studied some of the martial arts forms available at the time; becoming proficient with the bo staff. He never dreamed that he would be responsible for the preservation of one of the most highly respected fighting forms known (the system no longer exists in China), and now the most popular on the island of Okinawa."
