Thomas Graziano

Thomas D. Graziano, August 4, 1958 – March 6, 2001

Tom began his Uechi study in 1970, at the dojo of the late Forrest Sanborn and Carmine DiRamio, in Quincy, MA, where he taught the children’s class from 1977 until Forrest’s passing in 1984. Tom then formally became a student of Walter Mattson in Framingham, MA, where he achieved Yondan in 1987. His considerable size and strength coupled with his humility and gentleness, brought out the best in Tom’s training partners. Tom left us all too soon as a result of kidney disease since age 18. He is sorely missed and fondly remembered by his Uechi family.

Dr. Merton Cochran

Born: October 11,1937 Died: November 9, 2000

Dr. Merton Cochran, discharged honorably from the Marine Corps, serving from 1955-1959. Continuing his education, he graduated in 1973 from the University of Oregon receiving his Ph.D. in clinical psychology. Merton did extensive work with patients suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. He also was a coordinator for the employees assistance program at the Sheridan Wyoming Veterans Administration Hospital. During this time he was the Chief of Psychology Services. 

In retirement, at age 59, he began his study of Uechi Ryu Karate Do under Renshi Rokodan, Peggy Hess in Jensen Beach Florida.

His training and study became an important aspect of his life. Mert’s interest in the martial arts developed later in life, therefore some things didn’t come easily. This lack in natural ability was overcome by his strong will, perseverance, dedication and hard work.

A devoted Uechi Ryu practitioner, he was proud to achieve the rank of Shodan on December 4, 1999 under the watchful eye of Kyoshi Hachidan Jack Summers. 

His passing was sudden and unexpected. He is survived by his wife Diane and three children. 

He will sadly missed by his family, friends and dojo mates, but his spirit will surely live on.

Ahti Kaend

In Memory of Ahti Kaend

Our mentor Ahti Kaend left us on August 7, 2001. He will live on in our hearts and in our practice. He was a great kareteka, and he earned respect worldwide from all that took the time to listen to him and understand him. His practice was as meticulous and as sharp as he kept his dojo and everything else in his life, and he demanded that same level of excellence from those that trained with him. There is much to say about Ahti. Please visit:
