Max has been documenting his training philosophy posts on the “Heart-Mind-Spirit” forum on a regular basis for awhile, describing in detail his very unique and disciplined training practices.
Max never preaches that what he does is better or worse than any other method. But to Max, his very unusual (at least to modern Uechi practitioners) training practices are part of his “traditional” Uechi-ryu.

New England Visit. . .
I wish Bill would go public with his opinions, since he like the majority of other Uechi practitioners, prefer to remain silent and upset rather than stepping up and getting involved and being heard.
As I write this article I look over to the right frame and see that there are 689 people on uechi-ryu.com! Then I go to the Forums and see that 4 people are reading or posting! When I asked Bill why he doesn’t post or even read the forums, his answer pretty much mirrors what everyone else says when I ask them the same question. . .
