Check out the uechi videos on the following site.
www.yamazato-videos.com
Now the Kanei one I own and recommend, but there is another one and it is not clear who is on it. I have seen the package and checked the site and am still not sure who is performing in it. It looks old and the people appear to be Okinawan.
Has anyone seen this one, and is it worth the money?
Fred

I had a weak moment and broke down and bought it.
I'll post a review this weekend.

The videos are largely home videos from the early 90's of the Shohei-ryu seniors. The highlight I felt were of Sensei Yonamine doing a sanchin test on someone 8O , glad it wasn't me! Sensei Nakahodo also does an excellent Kata. Then there was footage of a tournament on Okinawa. The picture quality was mixed, but not bad.
The Video is alright if you are a serious Uechi addict, otherwise skip it.
With a little running commentary telling who the seniors were it would be a little better. I just happen to recognize them.
I give it a 6 out of 10.
Fred
