Joe Pomfret here,
Thanks Mike, I appreciate the outstanding support of you and others in the Uechi community. It was great to see Van, George Mattson (and his wife!), Dave, Fidel, and mike...how could I lose with all of that support?
I think paople are getting our message, which is "Uechi Ryu is a tremendous and comprehensive system. Although takedowns, ground position, and submissions can go a long way in rounding out your martial skills."
I would love to visit your school so that you can show me how you blend, and share, your Uechi and Jiu-Jitsu skills. I'm sure we would have much to talk about.
