Lifetime Membership now available!

     After doing considerable research, including looking at over twenty well-known international organizations, the Board has completed its work on Lifetime Membership.  This will be a good offering for serious Uechi practitioners, who plan to be working out, and part of the IUKF 10, 15, or 20 years from now.  This elite membership identifies you as a serious practitioner, and supporter of the IUKF.  It also will protect you from inflation-driven higher costs of membership in the future!

     Please contact our Membership Coordinator, David Berndt for more information, at

      After a considerable period of intense and hard work, John Page has completed an improved and updated version of the Junior Rules for Tournament organization and participation.  John deserves a hearty "Thanks" from all of us.  Please tell him so, when you see him at Summer Camp!

     The Junior Rules book includes specific information on equipment, clarifies target areas vs. areas of contact, and give ample detail on the role and conduct of judges and referees.

Name and Face Recognition project

Recently I received an excellent suggestion from Jay Salhanick, that we create and post information of interest to IUKF members, and those thinking about joining the organization.  Board member Henry Thom, recently back from 6 months in China on business, jumped in with both feet!  Henry is in the process of writing about both Uechi and IUKF history, so that it will be available to all who are interested.

In addition, he is creating a database that will highlight IUKF Seniors from 6th Dan and up, and will contain photos plus biographies of all these teachers and senior practitioners.  This way, you’ll get to know your IUKF seniors,  how the organization was formed, and how it is currently funtioning. 

If anyone has questions or suggestions for this project, please contact Henry, or myself
