Seminar with Bruce Hirabayashi Sensei in Regensburg, Germany

hirabayashi seminar germany2016 1A great Uechi Ryu Karate seminar with Bruce Hirabayashi Sensei  (8 Dan) from the USA was held at Regensburg/Germany on October 1st and 2nd, 2016. The event was organized by Paul Kronschnabl Sensei and his students of Regensburg Dojo Uechi-Ryu. The main subject of the seminar was 'Sanchin - from the inside out'. Principles about how to improve stability and transfer power through a proper body alignment, relaxed muscles and a firm rooting to the ground. About 40 participants from six different dojos (Kenyukai Bad Kissingen, Munich and Wuerzburg, Okikukai Munich, OUKA Erlangen and IUKF Regensburg) joined the event. Since there are not so many Uechi Ryu seminars in Germany during the year, this was a good opportunity for Uechi-Ryu practitioners to gather and practice together, and, to meet old and make some new friends.
