IUKF NE Regional Open Workout

by Darin Yee


The IUKF had another great regional training class on Sat August 24th. Practitioners from all over New England made their way up to Plymouth,New Hampshire to train with the students of White Mountain Karate. WMK and Christian Maine would like to thank Sensei Dave Kelly for making the trip to teach us various applications of kata and energy movement with our kata. Dave Kelly is an outstanding practitioner and teacher that trains with Sensei Buzz Durkin and the Butokukai association. Along with over 30 years of training in Uechi Ryu, Dave retired from the NH state police as a Major and has real world experience in self defense.

This class was the 3rd regional training of the year and along with the first two, it was a big success. I wanted to make sure to thank the IUKF and Sensei George Mattson for all the hard work over the years.Without the Federation and its members we would not have the opportunity to have this gathering of fine martial artists. The Federation gives us the segway to plan and coordinate the regional events.

I would like to thank Sensei Darin Yee yet again for being the man on the front line here in New England. Darin is a huge help to the dojos that are hosting these events by getting the word out and helping with any planing to make the event a success.

Finally on behalf of W.M.K. and its students, thank you to all the practitioners that made the drive up. We hope to train with you all again soon. If you’re ever up in the beautiful White Mountain Region of N.H. you’re more than welcome to stop by the dojo and train with us.
