What is Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo-jutsu?
Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo-jutsu is a unique collection & functional re-interpretation of old-school tegumi grappling drills & those embryonic Fujian-based quanfa practices once secretly cultivated before the development of the simplified version or modern tradition evolved. Re-systematized into a cohesive & completely application-based study, it was cradled in rediscovering and fusing together the principal teachings from many of this tradition’s most celebrated pioneers.
We have presented many of the drills from several angles to better study each technique. We have also used different yudansha in order to clearly illustrate how varying body types, and the physical demands they have on each of us, affect our range of motion and individual performance. Please remember, we ARE NOT trying to generate carbon copies or produce an army of clones, but rather, emphasize the importance of individuality while mastering common principles.
