seminar poster

One of the biggest international events for 2019 was organized in Argentina this May. A group of 14 Okinawan instructors visited Buenos Aires to teach and train with the local branch of Okikukai Uechi-Ryu. "Okinawa Masters Seminar of karate and kobudo" was organized by Fabio Cristiani Sensei and Daniel Romero Sensei. Besides the local Uechi-Ryu practitioners, the seminar attracted teams from Chile and Brazil. From Canada, Brian Vandenberg Sensei, from Serbia, Milan Dimitrieski Sensei and from Italy, Gaetano Palumbo Sensei also joined this great seminar. From the pictures posted on Uechi Ryu AKAO - Okikukai Argentina's Facebook page it seems that the event was a great success and all attendants had a wonderful experience of Karate, socializing and friendship.

The long list of the Okinawan Instructors that taught Uechi-Ryu Karate and Ryu-Kyu Kobudo in this seminar is the following:

Arakaki Takashi (8 Dan)
Arakaki Shozen (7 Dan)
Kiyuna Susumu (7 Dan)
Tsukayama Mazakasu (7 Dan)
