The Student and The Master

The Student and The Master To the reader, please do not make any more of this than a student’s inquisition for knowledge and understanding. I have been a student of martial arts for over 47 years.  In 1988, I was honored with “master” status by the Government in Southern China.  Although Hung-Gar was my major …

New USA Citizen… Bryan Liu

I’ve met many wonderful people who were/are associated with the martial arts. In 1983, Wenji (Johnny/Bryan) Liu became a valuable liasan between the China martial art community (in New York and Fuzhou China) and my efforts to locate links between Uechi-ryu and Chinese fighting systems. Because of Wenji’s efforts, my early SummerFests were able to …

Stress and Realism in the Martial Arts

Stress and Realism in the martial arts: [From Van Canna’s "Realism" Forum. An important topic that is normally not discussed in a dojo and one where no pat answers exist. I’ve written about it and in accompanying chapters, discuss what I consider to be the best, albeit, limited solutions.   The subject is part of my new "memories" book, which …

Mount dynamics for MMA

Teaching/Learning Traditional Uechi-ryu does not mean ignoring reality! It is my belief that every dojo should have a grappling program for "stand-up" martial artist. All students should have experience and tools for dealing with the likelihood that fights today will involve ground fighting. Gone are the days of John Wayne street encounters where the guy …
