If you had to describe Uechi is less than 2 minutes, what would you say?

Exhale at the moment of contact rather than after (breathe on the power move like a weight-lifter)
Block with both hands used together to add power to the block and position the hand for a counterattack
Use both left and right side of body to conserve energy (blocks and counters alternate from side to side)
Move whole body powerfully and efficiently rather than remaining stationary and using arm strength alone
Use lower body and leg strength to add power to the strike
Movements are elastic rather than rigid

**Dana strolls in to the room, sees Uechi people talking about breathing again...and runs out before it's too late**
