It is a form of self-defense that employs joint locks, grappling, and throwing techniques similar to those of other martial arts, as well as kicks, punches, and other striking attacks.

Uechi-Ryū is a traditional style of Okinawan karate. Uechi-Ryū means "Method/Way of Uechi". The original Chinese style was known as Pangai-noon, which translates to English as "half-hard, half-soft", the style was renamed Uechi-Ryū after the founder of the style, Kanbun Uechi, an Okinawan who went to China in March of 1897 to study martial arts and Chinese medicine, returned to Okinawa and began teaching/evolving the style, which was further evolved by his son Kanei Uechi at his school opened in Nago, Okinawa in 1942. In October 1946, at age 69, Kanbun left his school to Ryuyu Tomoyose who trained the first American to bring Uechi-ryu to the US, George Mattson. Mr. Nagel’s first Sensei Ted Kresge trained under Mr. Mattson in Boston.
