Sanchin,

I am a "lapsed" Uechi-ryu practitioner. (Broke a wrist just before my purple belt test & eventually moved on to hapkido)

HOWEVER, I am STILL an active Uechi fighter and turn up regularly at my old dojo to take on all comers (seriously).

Don't think there are many Uechi-ryu folks here but I'm interested to know.

Seiei Kan mainly, with some experiance in shorin ryu and shotokan. I'm currently interested in studying goju ryu methods, and am looking for an instructor around here. It's good to finally have a karate forum.

Wadoryu, Nidan. I also think Sanchin31 would be a good choice for moderator should admin deem this section needs one.
