I like this guy's stuff (unless he goes into the no touch stuff but none of that in this clip just good practical stuff):

Nice uechi?
these type combination and flow style movements are are given in kenpo karate, but to be honest most uechi practitioners i have come across cannot put three strikes together. the practice of "flow" seems to be severly lacking in many uechi practitioners training. i think uechi has a hard time with these type of movements because of the way many preform their kata, very 1,2,3 cadence oriented step by step actions. flow is something that needs to be trained. i dont see much of that in uechi. on the flip side the flow training can have a down side when your combinations go overboard and become un realistic. notice the attacker just kind of stands there and lets all this happen to him. granted this clip is for demonstration but its a big "fail" if hanging your hand out there in space becomes the norm and the defender goes into to many strikes.

"most uechi practitioners i have come across cannot put three strikes together." - That strikes me as a bit funny, because I have never met a human being who couldn't put three strikes together. It seems to be the normal baseline amount of strikes in a flurry.

There is another school of thought that subscribes to the deliberate application of body weight into the attacker. A different approach which leads to a slower, methodical flow, based on each subsequent movement of the attacker. Interesting how people diverge.

As far as 3 being the magic number goes, I can't help but think of sanchin, which is entirely based on that number. Each of the last 3 movements are actually composed of 3 discreet movements, in themselves. 8)

Another thing is, everyone I've ever met has the ability to put their hands and arms up in front of their face. There is just something that pisses me off about some macho dude slapping the ##### out of a human dummy who is standing in front of him with his arms at his side. What the ##### is that?

Flow is nice, but why not just punch the attacker in the chin. Why do people have to complicate matters. How about just doing something that matters.

Uechis effectiveness is built on flow look to the chinese origins ands styles

Its all there if you get rid of the stop start robot ryu drills

But then it wont be uechi to some.

Kotikitae is a flow drill thats second to none , but not in the way its often done.

Seems the biggest discussions on here are

Most cant flow
Most cant hit
Most dont get real self defense

Then if anyones outside the box its thats not uechi

Human nature sure is interesting

I reckon most can , just most dont get the encouragement or education or permission to go there.

I think people are generally talented. We spens more time limiting ourselves than bettering ourselves too often and it restricts growth .

Typical argument 5d

Its never hard to punch someone on the chin unless they choose to stop you.

Flow is a usefull tool but like any other ridiculous in isolation, and it needs power timing entry angle etc just like the punch to the chin.

It can include a punch to the chin.

But if i csn hit you once i can typically hit a lot more and that comes from flow for me, compound entry attack

There is always an answer, and that is what no one wants to hear in the land of invincible people.

If the human dummy dropped to a knee while putting his fist through the kenpo guy's inner thigh, all that flow would be fun to watch as he fell on his ass.

I am so tired of people talking about styles. It's just dumb. You show me a person who has mastered their art, and I will show you someone who I don't want to fight, plain and simple. (not that I want to fight anyone) :lol:

All these people who just want to learn how to defend themselves against some moronic criminal, and all you can do is argue about some esoteric crap.

Come on give us the answer then ;)

We're all vulnerable , and we all run on our own script

I still beleive folks can, and it's more useful taking the positive , and styles aren't limited any more than its practitioners.

Most take the route of flurry being weak because theyve only hit a weak flurry

Take your technique of doom , and do it more often and faster, no brainer.

But i get your point , thats why i stopped posting on the internet , all the experts , confusing opinion and experience for dissension.

If your confusing who gets there firstest with the mostest as esoteric , well ... Good luck pal
