Hey/ Hello

Do you know of any contacts for Uechi Ryu karate training in Sweden? I will be relocating to Gothenburg with my partner (she is Swedish) soon.

Any links are helpful.

Thank you!

I personally don’t know of any dojos in Sweden, but my instructor might. I’ll ask him when he gets back from Okinawa. He is currently there for the 2nd world Okinawa Karate Tournament and associated seminars.

Welcome to Sweden sorry for taking so long to respond. I live outside of Stockholm and unfortunately have no knowledge of any Uechi Ryu clubs. We train Shito and Goju in my club and the other club here teaches Shotokan.

Maybe you could find an Uechi Ryu club via the swedish Budo and Martial Arts association?

After a minor health setback in the beginning of last week, I finally could make it to and fully participate in this semester’s first club session on Saturday.

Happy that my daughter wishes to continue training for another semester, we went together and had a great start.

Among other things we did (some of these were only in the final advanced session) kakie, and trained getting inside a guard, grabbing the neck of your partner from behind. Katas we did were Gekisaidai shodan, nidan and Sanchin (the ”real” version with turns - that I still don’t know well enough to train on my own). Will definitely look into that more so I can add it to my training routine.

I try to start and finish each solo kata training with Naifanchi shodan and Sanchin. So far the Sanchin is the short version, without turns

Hope you are all having a great start of the semester. Train hard, train well

I believe I just made an important discovery during the end of today’s solo session, as I was ending with two Naifanchi shodan katas as usual:

”Everything should start from the center”

Suddenly all I’ve heard about staying centered (both physically and mentally), using hips not arms, ”the whip” concept - seemed to make sense! Feel eager to start applying this new found understanding to more and more of my karate and to conflict resolution in the public school where I teach. To more and more of my life.

I love it when I have one of those "a-ha" moments, where things you've been learning just all come into focus. It's an awesome feeling. I'm glad to hear it that you're having them too!

Those Aha moments usher in effectiveness. For that effectiveness to mature, it must be seriously pursued with excellence, but that excellence has nothing to fear from observation.

Train hard and train well.
