Where the Best of Uechi Karate Gather

Who is Uechi SummerFest for? Simply put, our event is for motivated practitioners of Uechiryu who are eager to gain a deeper understanding of their art, who are ready and willing to train hard and get an incredible workout, and who are excited to be around others who have the same love for Uechiryu.

Uechi SummerFest training is all encompassing. Our presenters are selected to enrich the mind, body, and spirit of each student. Our goal is for all our participants to walk away from each seminar more excited about their training wanting to learn more.

Whether you are a Uechi SummerFest regular or new to the event we can’t wait to see you there! We know that you will leave the weekend having gained a deeper knowledge and social bonds that can only come from sincere karate training.
