I hope this letter find you in good spirits and splendid health. I am writing on behave of the “Uechi-Ryu” friendship workout committee comprised of Pat Saunders, Christian Maine and myself. We are inviting all honorable and respectful adult Uechi- Ryu practitioners to attend.
The first workout was at in Stow, Ma hosted by Sensei Pat Saunders. We had over 50 adults of various grade and abilities. Our workouts are carefully planned to fit everyone from 15 years of age to attendees as senior as 76 years of age. We would like to congratulate Sensei Pat for her great success.
The next workout is hosted by senior senseis Vinny Christiano and Paul Giella. Both of them have slightly different teaching method but compliment each other very well. They are 2 of the most respected students, senseis and practitioners of Uechi-Ryu. There is much everyone can learn from them.
Their workout will be held on Saturday, March the 9th at the “Hut”. The address is 69 Tyler Terrace, in Newton, MA. Everyone is required to pay $15 for “mat fee”. They will expect everyone to be there at 9:30 am. The workout will end at 11:30 am. After the workout, they recommend the Union Square Restaurant. The estimated cost for lunch is $20.
Vinny Sensei plans some vigorous exercises and some variations on the katas. Paul Sensei will do the long, three part Sanchin (now endorsed by Sensei Mattson) and a couple of related exercises.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to write or call me. We look forwards to seeing many old friends and sharing a great time together. Please bring along anyone else yo feel may want to come .
