Greetings Senseis and Black Belts,
This message comes with my sincere wish that you’re all doing well and training vigorously.
In the past several months, four of your brothers in Uechi-ryu Karate-Do (America) have been working diligently to unite the younger members of our style in some friendly competition. Those brothers are, Bob Bethoney, Darin Yee, Len Testa and Me.
I’ve been training  in Uechi-ryu Karate long enough (since 1967) to know that, no matter what rank you are, what you do for a living, how many degrees you have, how many students you have, who you study with or how many trophies you’ve won, you’re nothing unless you exhibit what is known as Bushido.
In the spirit of Bushido (The warriors way) I would like to invite you and your students to our third event of the 2008 Uechiryu Karate Championship Series. I’m calling this tournament:
UECHI FORCE KARATE TOURNAMENT in honor of the great  Master Uechi Kanei.
Please find the time Saturday, October 4, 2008 to attend the event at the Jungleplex, 8 Natalie Way, Plymouth, MA. We’ll have opening ceremonies at 9:00am sharp. The black belt meeting will be at 8:30am. This Series is doing great!  Bob and Darin set a good pace for success. I hope I can do the same. We’re having a banquet in November to award the Champions their trophies, we’ll talk about Uechi-ryu, make friends and have a great meal together.
Lastly, some of you may not know me. I’m  willing to go to your dojo and tell you about my up-coming tournament and the Series. I’m also willing to teach a class for you. I go to Okinawa (Master Arakaki’s Yagibaru Dojo) every year for training in Karate-Do and Kobudo. I’m sure you’d find the things that I teach are something you’ve never seen before in Uechi-ryu.  
The flyer for the event is attached.   Please hang it on your bulletin boards to let your students (17 and younger) know about the event.
