We had a nice visit Tuesday night class at the Shinkokai _by two of my favorite Uechi-ka who cross trained with me at Brandeis University years back.
Seth Rosenblatt and Chris Kime. I am so happy for them as they are really two extremely intelligent, well behaved and well practiced in Uechi, with Seth also having worked out for two years in Japan at the dojo of sensei Uehara, and presently a student of Sensei Mehran Shahkar: El Sobrante, CA...whom I met last year at summer camp...quite the gentleman.
Some of you may recall my thread about the 'Kingai Sanchin' as taught by Uehara sensei in Tokyo, and their rigorous conditioning.
Seth demonstrated a very powerful and highly technical Uechi on the floor...good job my friend, hope to see you again soon.
But equally impressive is Seth's new business venture you see in the link above.
“People sell their used scales on eBay. You extract the Wi-Fi key, and if you know where the seller lived [such as from the return label on the box used to ship the device], you could compromise their home Wi-Fi,” Munro said. Gaining Wi-Fi access could be a boon to a stalker or somebody looking to break into your home, he added—especially if you have connected other devices to it, such as a door lock.https://the-parallax.com/2015/12/22/the ... echnology/
