Excellent work all around Shai. Love the footwork. It reminds me of my soccer days.

You may want to post some clips of the footwork against some of the habitual acts of street violence.

Are the ground fighting techniques shown at 0:25 in the last video from Uechi Ryu or are you adding them from other styles?

I was thinking the same about the Trapping clip, but I did enjoy it :)

awesome clips

Jorvik the trapping clip is just an expression of kotikitae or the wauke IMHO , pretty fundamentally Uechi, these guys are showing something.

Shai-hais doing something right , personally I liked all of it.

I tried to break down that trapping clip but can't. Anybody here with a quicker eye than me able to dissect that, break it down so i could practice it as an entry?

Great stuff from Shai Hai. Love to see more of this type of interpretation.

Well it looks to me like the opponent is standing in a right front guard stance and he basically knocks his right hand away with his right hand, then knocks his left hand down with his left hand and then returns his left hand back to cover the guys right hand while using a palm heel strike with his right to the guys chin.
I've seen a few variations of this
also check out 3:53 here

Ray is correct, this is what the sequence is, and it is all in the template of the Wauke.

I came up with a variation on this.which I think is even more "uechi" and that is, you do this sequence.but when you get to the palm heel strike. Uki loosens his right hand and blocks, so you grab his wrist and pull him toward you while stepping to your left and giving him a forearm smash to the back of his neck 8) ........maybe it's already standard Uechi, if not I think it would work 8)

Its all angles and entries Ray, once you see how the circle works in establishing covers position and entry you can pull the Katas apart.

Traditional or not sounds like your uechi 8)

I just finished doing a day course in "Balintawak" escrima.basic stick work and fillipino boxing. What amazed me about the fillipino boxing was how many times the Wa uke was used ( I think of this as a Pak Sau followed by a fook sau, from WC days).
I think of Wa uke as the creative side of MA, the main stuff has to be solid basic knockdown ryu.but stuff like the Wa uke fits into creative sticking and trapping.the other stuff like backfist,shuto, boshinkan and pheonix eye fist are either complimentary and fit into the template.or additional one shot knockdowns.I can even work some Aiki stuff into it, and now the fillipino Dumog works really well also 8)

Good stuff, Ray. The combination of straight/circle is the best, also because the concept naturally extends to footwork very well in Uechi in flanking and encircling the opponent.

Think of doing a wauke with your feet.

Watch Cristiano Ronaldo's waukes with his feet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JL0GOmOkTU

There is a lesson to learn there for MA and that is in footy to "keep your eyes on the ball and not the players feet" we must consider similar tactics in Ma's and know where to look or portion our gaze

Very true, Ray. Personally, I think that looking at the sternum area of an opponent so you can see his feet as well perceive shoulders movement for punches, shoot takedowns, etc., is a good thing.

Something that helped me a lot during competition sparring.
