thanks to all those who have made this site what it is. I've been browsing for a couple of days and have found usefull, interesting and often challenging material here. What a great community - I'm thrilled to be part of it!
Here's a little about me: I'm a student of David Mott, Toronto; I rated Shodan in 1993 (26 yrs old) then moved to London, ON where I continued training (and leading a study group with the help of Terry Sicular - a GEM student from Boston); I rated Nidan in 1996 then in 1999 life got complex and I lost my way.
About two years ago I returned to training with David (I still live in London) and I began training also at a Shorin-Ryu Dojo in my neighbourhood. I'm already coming up for Dan testing in Shorin-Ryu and they allow me to teach a three hour Uechi class on Sunday mornings.
I look forward to advancing (and sharing) in Uechi again - like others who have written in this forum it tugged at my soul while I was off.
Also, years ago I lost track of two people whom I miss. Does anyone out there know how I could reach Bruce Hirobayashi (Renshi?) or Bill Richards (Edmonton, AB?)
