George, Didn’t know if you’d received this already. Perhaps there are some Uechika who would be interested in this, especially those on the West Coast. I use some Di Da Jow formulated by Sifu Chu from the Yip Man receipe… really works. Sifu Chu is a TCM and Acupunture practitioner and teacher, who knows his stuff, and gives excellent historical background to his presentations .
