Hi all,

First let me wish you all a very happy new year and I hope all your landings will be happy ones!

I also hope that this year will prove fruitful where it concerns information about this most interesting of kata: the Uchida-shi Shobu no Kata.

NBK is the one who is most knowledgeable about this matter and who has been kind enough to provide info and translations describing this kata.

Foregoing years not a lot of members has chimed in on this subject.

Because of that " Those in the know" might conclude that I am the only one interested in this kata. The last I cannot imagine.

So feel free to share any info you have on Uchida his judo and kata or just chime in so the interest in this kata of ' practical ' judo becomes evident.

In case nobody else does I will make this subject a Zenny exercise for the rest of my life and will keep on posting yearly.

Happy landings.
