Presented by Dave Sargent
About 1980 a student of mine had an uncle that practiced Uechi-Ryu while
stationed on Okinawa. The uncle had a collection of photographs (8X10) that I
was allowed to make copies of, so I photographed them. These are those
photographs. The time frame was about 1966 as determined by additional
material with the photos. DS
Kanei Uechi, 1911 -- 1991
These very large temple guards have been
on display at the DeYoung museum in San
Francisco, CA. Advanced students will
recognize the stances. DS
