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.

Saturday’s Junior Program is dedicated to Junior Students of all ages and ranks. The morning is an intense rotating workout with James Cameron, Neil Stone, and Marcus Traynor – instructors with a combined experience of over a hundred years! Saturday morning is great for all ranks, especially for those who are preparing for their upcoming junior black belt testing.

Saturday’s Afternoon is a variety of Uechi, Kobudo (weapons), and fun training drills from the best Senseis and Instructors in the Uechi world!

One of the best things a junior student can do for their training is participate in SummerFest!
