The one thing I found standard in Uechi-ryu is that there are few standards, one of the reason I put in the opening page "...follow your instructor..."
Sometimes, even the simplest things most take for granted, like the opening bow and associated movements, tend to bug me.
I've practiced at least three or four different ways of doing the opening movements. Sometimes I illustrated differences in techniques and such, but didn't want Uechi-ryu 2000 to degenerate into a catalog of different ways to do the same thing.
Have been designing a new webpage that focuses around Uechi-ryu 2000, and will post it as soon as the next printing is out. Feel free to send email to <A HREF="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</A> at any time concerning issues you may have.
