From Bill Glasheen's forum..
Gary summed it up perfectly: in a word the regional workouts are about EXCHANGE.
Uechi ryu can be as strong as we decide to make it. It will only become stronger with your support. It is to easy to sit in your dojo and believe the fairy tales you tell each other. Get out on the floor and try out your stuff, experiment, learn, grow. For the next regional workout, I personally will be on the phone calling each dojo that participated in the first workout.
Mike Murphy, Gary Khoury, GEM, Van Canna,et. al. , all the participants in the regional workout series will work hard to have the 3rd regional workout the best yet. We promise a rich, exciting, agenda. Only the people who participate will benefit..
