Some excellent vintage footage of a Uechi Ryu demonstration is up on YouTube, courtesy of Mario McKenna. The film is from a commemorative demonstration on the 25th anniversary of Uechi Kanbun’s death. Uechi Kanei and students show kata, kitae, knife defenses (that are refreshingly rugged) and sparring. Lots of good stuff to be seen. Enjoy!
