Darin Yee, VP

Hello Friends and Senseis,

darin yee 5-18-08-CThis is a reminder to watch for the next regional workout being held near you.

There is no politics.  Just a great workout with our Uechi Family and a dinner/social afterwards at a nice pub right across the parking lot.  All respectable dojos are welcome and encouraged to attend.

This 2 hour workout will consist of a few warm ups, stretching exercises, punching and kicking drills, performing all 8 katas, discussion and practice of choice techniques within all 8 katas and if we have any time, we can train some of the fighting techniques I used during my fighting days.

The mat fee is $15 per person.  This will cover the rental of the space, the payment for a custodian and insurance which was required for the rental.

Regional workouts are opened to all ranks.  I have assigned black belts to work with students who don’t know the higher katas.  At the last regional workout, I invited some of my Jr. black belts and they had a great time.  I am again allowing them to attend.  Please ask your Jr. black belts to attend also.  Remember they will be the future of our system.  We should want to get them involved and prepare them for the future.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  You have my email address.
