Hi Dave,

Always a pleasure. You can cover the truisms of defensive/survival component in ways none of us have really been exposed to or care to imagine.

I will give you one example of this very quickly, and you can bank on it: _ your ‘come to Jesus’ drill will be looked at as a ‘rug lying askew’ on the Uechi dojo floor_ because of the counterpoint that a ‘properly drilled’ Uechi-ka would not go down in the manner you describe.


I am glad you are doing this, because in the past _on my forum, where I act as a ‘facilitator’ in bringing expert knowledge to the fore, we have seen resentment and backlash.

Since you and Roy have been back into the fold and your teachings are now the theme for future camps, we seem to be observing a ‘reversal of fortunes', with not only acceptance but _ a promoting of heretofore unsettling truisms.

You may not get the ‘misfiring tail pipe’ response just yet, but keep your eyes open. :wink:


I would also like to see discussed, as you indicated in our chat at camp, specialized programming to minimize the danger of losing fingers and tendons to the ‘sudden blade’ when a Uechi-ka sticks his arms and fingers out into ‘the zone’ by instinct as per the style.

Also how to avoid sudden small circle jujutsu applications against this Uechi Kamae tendency of sticking fingers in your face.

Thanks, Dave. :)

Dave!

You are the first person I've been formally introduced to only after having ripped and stripped a simulation hand gun down your front side. And our relationship has been everything I've hoped for since that day.

I saw mention of your forum on one of Van's threads and had to say thanks to you, and Roy, for the great training at camp.

Looking forward to more discussion...

Dave-

I wanted to throw in a big "welcome". You've stimulated some great discussion and got me typing more than I have in months.

Thank you.

Sunny so far for the summer. Do you need a place to stay? I usually have a decent scotch on hand and the view from the deck is very relaxing.
