    Hi Mario,

    Thank goodness there are pople like you in the karate world….

    I smiled when I read Uechi sensei’s comment about students these days (1961) not being serious….not much has changed in 50+ years then!

    I looked in my files to see if I could find what Uechi sensei might have farmed; I found several references to the fact that he did farm, but no mention of what. My guess however, would be something like sweet-potato: but that is just a guess.

    Cheers!
    Mike

    Hi Mario, thank you for sharing. Enjoyable read. Is it okay to share this one quote without posting the whole article? “Miyagi Chojun sensei told me once, “Training is like hot water. If you stop in your first year the water will become cold and it will take two years to heat it back up.” I love this saying, as too many people think that they retain their position and skill although they have been inactive for years… Thanks again.
