Last night I watched the 1965 videotape of
Master Kanei Uechi. Power and grace, its sounds so cliché but that’s the words I use to describe his kata. I had no idea of the astounding power. What is most in my mind is the rocket like front kick.
The circle block, the pulling in, slamming the knee up and the rocket front kick.
