This wonderful facility is operated by one of my very best students of years back...Frank Di Meo...a dynamic quick learner, extremely strong and skilled fighter, humble, and utmost respectful in all ways.

He moved on to become an exceptional combat paratrooper...God bless him.

He is now in Forida, with his crossfit gym being one of the best. He is a real strongman, specializing in Olympics lifts, but has a program specially designed for martial artists that will increase a person's strenght considerably.

Some of you in the area may wish to stop by and check out the place.

The type of training we do here incorporates Underground Strength Training ( a system created by Zach Even-Esh), which includes odd object training with stones, sandbags,sledge hammers, tires, Battling Ropes, and a lot of bodyweight exercises, CrossFit which includes Olympic Weightlifting, Power lifting, CrossFit Striking, kettlebels, medicine balls, basic gymnastics, running, and rope climbing.
There is more but that is a basic overview.


Imagine the body conditioning, endurance, and the kind of strenght one would develop.Image

Also as for Uechi strenght training...
One last thing, Van, I forgot. Regarding exercises that would benefit Uechi practitioners, I would recommend the keg squats using the bear hug grip to strengthen the legs, core, plus the forearms and hands.

All the varieties of pullups we do are great for grip and forearm strength also.
Those are a couple to start with, I can send you more soon.
