I’ve been sent the new wireless unit to test out and must say that it works great. . . for an entirely different audience and purpose than the original “wired” sensor unit. The wireless sensors are sturdy and weight about 1/2 oz and measure 1″X2″ and are 3/8″ deep. Being wireless gives the program tremendous …View full post

My philosophy is that ground fighting is simply "doing kata while horizontal"! We work on moves and techniques (similar to the ones in Morne Swanepoel’s article) as sequence drills, then with a partner. I teach these techniques as part of my Uechi-ryu program. To me, they are important applications drawn from the Uechi-ryu "core" program. GEM
The Oxford dictionary explains positioning as follow:
‘ place occupied by person or thing; proper place; way thing is placed, mental attitude, state of affairs, situation, rank or status, strategic point ‘
The above explanation is clear, but what does this mean in the world of MMA and Submission wrestling ?
The goal to obtain superior positioning over ones opponent in the stand up and ground ranges to execute devastating strikes, submission and choke holds has become imperative for any combat athlete.
Attaining the mounted position is one of the most sought after positions for most fighters & students in MMA/Submission wrestling. This occurs when one fighter is on top of his opponent, astride his chest with both knees on the floor. There are various reasons why this position is sought after:

K is 4 Kill is the brainchild of Skye and myself, combining her need to address the lack of hawt and affordable women’s designer T-shirts and accessories and my desire to retire by the age of 30.
Well, one out of two isn’t so bad.
Seriously, this project has weathered everything from hard drive failures to woefully misadvertised slam poetry events. The designs are geared for both men and women, and we hope that you’ll check out our Web site and, if you feel so inclined, purchase a shirt. Our first T features San Francisco’s (and possibly the world’s) greatest zombie burlesque troop, the Living Dead Girlz ( http://www.livingdeadgirlz.com), in a limited edition print in metallic silver foil on black, red or blue on women’s cut T’s and in matte gray against black, charcoal or navy T’s for the men’s cut.
Please forward this email on to anybody who you think might be interested in what we’re doing. In the future, we hope to expand not just the product line, but create a com… but I’ve said too much. As Skye mentions in the first post on the site, we’re already shipping orders to Sweden, Japan, Australia, the U.K. and around the U.S. Not sure why Canada isn’t represented… anybody know any Canadians who wear T-shrits?
For those who’ve helped us incubate this project, we are extremely grateful.
Remember: Frump is out.

I really like the DVD and the exercises. I’ll probably need a few more for the various people
“David Mott recently made a DVD of Coiling Silk Exercises he has been quietly working on and sharing with his students at Cold Mountain School, in Toronto.
There are eight exercises in total and each derives its form from various physical phrases found directly in the practice of Uechi-Ryu.
I’ve shared them with my small class and have found them to be valuable in developing body integration, a deeper understanding of breath as it relates to movement, smoothing out small muscle control issues and opening a new chapter in the way Uechi kata can be perceived.
Besides that, performing these exercises makes me feel good.

On the body there are a great number of accessible entries to nerve structures that will cause a loss of body control, reflexive actions and other disruptive affects on the body’s normal functions. Typically when attacking the body the results were based on mass, strength and condition, but when attacking the nerves these limitations are no longer as concerning.This special knowledge of accessing the human anatomy is called Kyusho (Okinawan term for Vital Point). And as all nerves lay between muscle, tendon and bone structures the Art of Uechi Ryu maps and teaches the practitioner how to correctly target these accessible targets, rather than the supportive structures surrounding them. By using the pre-arranged training drill of Dan Kumite, this powerful knowledge is quickly and easily assimilated, yield much more effect and potential in your Art.
In an article from Dragon Times with Shinyu Gushi Sensei on Kyusho in Uechi Ryu…
Dragon Times: When you were learning karate as a young student, did the seniors teach you kyusho (nerve points)?
