Mr. Pantazi:

I can't help you with your question, but I found it funny that my regional bias would read your topic "South Shore" as looking for an instructor at Lake Tahoe. OOPS! Peace.

Good Morning,

There are PLENTY of good Uechi schools South of Boston. Sensei Paone is in Norwell specifically, and there are others in the area as well. Take a gander at the Instructors link on the Home Page.

As for Jujitsu, Uechi-Ryu America Karate Studio in Randolph holds jujitsu Tuesday (7-8PM) and Saturday (10:30-12Noon). Distance might be a problem from the REAL deep South Shore. Visitors are always welcome. See Sensei Mike Murphy's listing on the isntructor list for the phone number.

Evan San,

As Gene has mentioned Mike Murphy in Randolph is best for the Uechi-Ryu/ Jujistu in that he teaches both and as you know i visit him frequently and would vouch for his abilities very highly. (Uechi-Ryu America)

Sensei Ricco Paone in Norwell is closing next month and going to be in Whitman with my group of advanced students. We do not have a beginner class at this time.

As Gene stated, there are many South Shore Schools around but for that combination, Mike is the way to go !

Best regards,

Gary S.

Pantazi Sensei - just a little bit further south, and in Plymouth county, there is an awesome Uechi-ryu & Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu dojo in Bridgewater.

It is listed in the links page under the Academy of Uechi-Ryu, although it has been recently renamed Reality Self-Defense.

Sensei Joe Pomfret, like Sensei Murphy, is a Bridgewater State College (BSC) graduate and a teacher. He was also a Marine Corps CQC instructor. He teaches Uechi-ryu and BJJ.

Sensei Josh Wiseman is also ex-marine and in his final semester at BSC. He teaches BJJ and Self-Defense. He is the most accomplished grappler that I've ever encountered.

Just one more option for you. Best regards, Steve
