Uechiryu Karate -Do. Known and practiced worldwide. It is a strong formidable style of martial art. There are many Uechi-ryu schools and organizations throughout the world. The style is known as the convergence of the Tiger, Dragon and Crane systems of southern China. Founded by the Okinawan Grand Master Kanbun Uechi.
Syoubukai Kobudo .This method of Okinawan weapons practice utilizes the BO staff, Nunchaku, Sai, Tonfa & Kama. We also teach Chinese FAN form.
Neves Kipranachi This skill is completely new (originated in August 2016) and has been established by Mr. Manuel "Manny" Neves. After over 50 years of practicing
and teaching one method of karate, after a certain time, various innovative skills
come to mind. This is a completely new method and has four (4) unique kata. This style has qualities of the Bear, Snake and Fox. A New England Style.
Manny Neves has been studying Uechiryu Karate since 1966. He was born in New Bedford, Ma and raised in Lynn, Ma. He's been fortunate to have learned a great deal about Uechiryu Karate-Do from many outstanding instructors. He continues to study and tries diligently to teach his students a deeper meaning of martial arts. He's developed a methodology he calls KIPRANACHI that'll inspire you and want you to look closely at yourself to see how really weak you are and to find a means of strengthening those weaknesses. It requires humility. The first key to learning. While training in Okinawa, while in the US Army, he received his first degree black belt (Uechiryu) in November 1972 from Kanei Uechi. He got a lot out of training regularly in front of Master Kanei Uechi. One-on-one. There was a training session from 2pm to 4pm at the headquarters Futenma dojo that Manny rarely missed because Master Uechi shared unique insights on the development of Uechiryu. Manny's notes on that training has helped him to this day.
Master Yoshiharu Arakaki shown here in 2015 with Manny Neves was one of Kanei Uechi's most dedicated students. He trained for over 30 years at the Futenma Dojo. He was highly regarded by Master Kanei Uechi and can be seen doing many demonstrations on the historical tapes.
Mrs. Sheila Neves has been studying karate since 1986. She exemplifies the spirit of martial arts: Honesty, Courtesy, Respect, Discipline and Honor. She has reached a higher plateau of knowledge by exhibiting courage in the face of much adversity and has proven herself many times over to be a great warrior., She teaches her students always with great understanding of the skills of martial techniques and she teaches with compassion and care at all times. She studies martial art knowledge with deep devotion. She's competed in many tournaments and has received many first places in her divisions. She teaches karate regularly at both Neves Karate Academy dojos.
At the Neves Karate Academy we value the ideas of others. We recognize that martial artists are a diverse group of individuals. It's not just for the youngsters with "super powers" like Tony Jaa, or some other new action hero/heroine under age 35. It's also for us seniors (>60). We love it all! We just want to know what's "behind" the technique and how it works and where it originated. What's it all about? How can I use that skill to overcome a particular adversary and have fun at the same time??
Martial Artists train everywhere
