“All is in Uechi-ryu”!

SummerFest 2007 Theme! I received a surprising number of e-mail from past SummerFest participants, suggesting a more focused Uechi-ryu schedule for this year. I always counter with the fact that there are always  classes in Uechi-ryu going on every hour, for beginners, intermediates and advanced students.

The Gentle Side of Van Canna!

The Gentle Side of Van Canna. . . Sussurra La Sera …Whispers the evening… I’ll try to describe the sensation.

More Bad Science

More bad science by Bill Glasheen I hate it when “junk science” makes it into the mainstream media – particularly when it is politically motivated. I’ve been all over the CO2 “doom and gloom” scenarios in other threads. This one is about a study allegedly linking vitamin use with prostate cancer. The study will be …
