Hey, KentuckyUechi, have you tried to go through the black belt registry to see what dojo and instructors are in Kentucky. You may find an instructor that may know something. Good luck!
If you cannot find Uechi right away, one option you may want to consider is to sign up for George Mattson's virtual dojo. It is designed for this very purpose and George is great!
I hope things work out for you and your Uechi.
PS If you are ever in the Richmond area, please look up Bill Glasheen's dojo and come work out. You can stay in my guest room.
