Testing for Rank Endorsed by the International Uechi-ryu Karate Federation (IUKF)
As you study, train and learn with Sensei Mattson, you will test for different ranks online. We use the classical 10-kyu rank system with white, green, and brown belts for beginners and intermediate students.
Members of the academy who qualify for advanced rank, will be tested on-line through an innovative system created by Sensei Mattson and successfully used to test many senior black belts and senior teachers within the system. The International Uechi-ryu Karate Federation (IUKF) has implemented with Mattson, an effective “pre-testing” method of working with prospective black belt candidates that is considered to be one of the best and fairest testing methods
Sanchin The Old Way
Sanchin is the first kata of Uechi-ryu karate; and the most important. Meaning “three conflicts”, Sanchin develops the student’s body, mind, and spirit. Start the learning of Sanchin using a traditional approach, just as it was taught in China.
We offer a 12-week program called “The Old Way” that anyone can take. No prior knowledge is required. The Old Way complements the new student’s early practice of Uechi-ryu and elevates the practice of senior-ranked practitioners.
