Why Neves Karate Academy?

Over the years of instructing Uechiryu Okinawan
Karate we've come to understand, admire and appreciate what it takes to keep teaching and practicing the original way, what's called Dento, the tradition. Once you understand the importance, you never lose it! 
The traditionalist never changes the kata or it's meaning
from what was taught and instructed by the founders
of the style as well as the dedicated seniors who keep
the traditionalist way alive. Not just sport...tradition!

Challenge Question


Back in 1972 when I tested for my shodan, 1st degree black belt, I had no clue or understanding as to who the three (3) gentlemen to the left were that sat in as officials for the exam. The test was at the Futenma Uechiryu 
headquarters dojo in Okinawa. Master Uechi Kanei and at least two other
Individuals were also on the board. I didn' t know it at the time, but these
gentlemen were the highest ranking individuals and top students of  Master
Kanei Uechi. Do you know who they are? I can tell you that the gentleman to the far right is Master Nakahodo who's going strong today. I believe they were all Rokudan, Renshi at the time. To date, I haven't seen anyone with a more heightened knowledge or development of Sanchin Kata than the gentleman on the left. Read more in the "Contact" section of this site.
