by George Mattson


WinterFest – A time to recharge our interest, motivations and goals, while meeting new friends and “catching up” with old friends.

2022 Uechi-ryu Karate WinterFest Update

Friday and Saturday’s seminars will be conducted from 9AM – 3PM at the Eustis Service Center. Lunch will be served at the facility from 12-1PM. Saturday, the Masters’ Celebration will be conducted.

The Eustis Service Center is tucked beside Sunset Island Park, which sits a large banquet hall, overlooking an oak canopy that is sure to impress. This 3400 square-foot hall has a full-service kitchen and a view of a backyard courtyard that will be use for outdoor workouts, seminars and Kobudo. The Center is located at 301 West Ward Avenue, Eustis 32726.

Sunday’s session
will be held at the Central Florida Karate Studeo, 2800 Old W. Highway 441 in Mount Dora, FL 32757.
Weapon classes will begin at 9am and run until noon.

We are arranging reservations for group dinners on Friday and Saturday evening for those who have arranged to attend. Details will be available on Friday when signing in. (We are also looking into the possibility of scheduling a barbeque on either Friday or Saturday)

Seminar Schedule: We have a super grand schedule of Presenters for all three days. Friday, each presenter will conduct a 30 minute review of material, attended by all participants. The object is for the Presenters to summarize what their course is all about and to give a lesson that will provide all with both an understanding of material presented and determination what Presenter they will wish to work out with on Saturday, where multiple seminars will be conducted at the same time and times will be determined by the teachers.
