I would like to say hello to all my new brothers and sisters in the martial arts. I look forword to our disscusions and
learning from everyone. I would like to thank Sensei Mattson for making this possible, it is truly an honor to know him and to be able to talk with him . I started training in uechi when I was 31 but had to stop because of family .I started training in Jiu JItsu when I was 41 and I am still going,I love it !

My Best to All

How long did you study Uechi Sheldon? I know little about the art you now study and looking forward to "peek in the door"
Best wishes to you as well.

Shinto Yoshin Kai

Postby J. Sheldon » Sun Feb 11, 2007 6:29 pm

The art that I started training is Shinto Yoshin Kai jiu Jitsu.It teaches balance,leverage ,sensitivity,attacking opponents weakness and using opponents strengh against them. There are ten elements of this style.1. Ukemi- falling practice 2.Nage-throwing 3. Kensetsu- joint locking 4. Atemi- vital striking 5.Uke Kata blocking techniques 6. Dachi Waza- stances7.Katamaewaza - groundwork positions and techniques 8. Kimenokata- forms of self defense, these are scripted 9.Renzokuwaza- continuous movement techniques 10. Ashiwaza- movement and footwork.
