Looking forward to seeing your comments on these forums. Based on your interesting seminars during camp last weekend, I predict that you will enjoy the ongoing "virtual" seminars taking place here.
Thank you for providing a wonderfully simple and practical system of "realistic" self-defense that so nicely fits into our traditional Uechi-ryu program.
Everyone who actually got on the grass with you agreed that your program is fantastic and will fit in nicely with what we are currently doing.
We also appreciated that you didn't trash the traditional martial arts in order to make your points. Instead, you showed us how our Uechi-ryu provided a strong foundation for your realistic methods.
Realistic senerio training is an important part of your program. You won't get any argument from anyone on these forums regarding this point. We all liked the Redman suits, which allowed much more realistic contact to be made, without any loss of movement. Having both the instructor and student wearing the equipment, allowed much more realistic senerio action than we are used to.
Your emphasis on safety during training was also appreciated.
Again, thanks for all your help and guidance. IUKF is looking forward to working with you.
