Sensei Fisher, who was one of few foreigners ever to complete the JKA Instructor Training program, would be one of the talented group that would include many of the top Shotokan teachers in the world - a group that would include myself, Sensei Kensuke Seto, James Field, Steve Ubl, Richard Amos and others . I had not seen Malcolm in over 20 years.
...
I had not seen Sensei in more than ten years, and Steve Ubl had not seen him for about thirty years.
...
Steve Ubl was the final teacher on Friday. Steve is really unique and has really made karate his own. He was the first resident ( and the only resident at that time ) at the Hoitsugan Dojo, and a personal student of Nakayama Sensei. During his relatively short stay in Japan, Nakayama Sensei taught him alone, and shared some unique aspects of karate with Steve. Steve is exceptionally strong and knowledgeable about kata bunkai, real budo. More importantly, he is such a humble guy and a great friend.
...
Malcolm and Steve split the next sessions.
...
Malcolm taught "The Riddle of Heian Shodan,"enlightening us with some unique perspectives on Heian Shodan, the kata that Nakayama Sensei often said must be mastered deeply to truly understand Shotokan, while Steve presented "Fundamentals" in his unique way, often demonstrating the powerful nature of application of the techniques.
...
In addition, Field Sensei returned with more kumite combinations, Steve continued with more advanced kata application, and I introduced a variety of soft blocking techniques and "Sasoi-waza," inviting an opponent to attack and seizing the initiative.
...
The day continued with the likes of Malcolm Fisher, James Yabe, Steve Ubl.
Steve Ubl & Richard Amos Course Review

...
Richard Amos is obviously an international respected Instructor, but Steve Ubl although not being a hugely well known name, is a pioneer in his own unique approach to karate.
...
Steve Ubl started his journey in karate in 1969, before living in Japan where he went under the wing of Master Masatoshi Nakayama, Chief Instructor of the JKA, becoming his very personal student. He is noted as being the first ever resident at the Hoitsugan, Master Nakayama's personal dojo in 1972 and spent many hours receiving private tuition from the Master himself during his repeated returns to Japan.
...
The much-awaited second class of the day was taken by Steve Ubl. He opened the class by getting us to punch gyaku-tsuki in zenkustu-dachi, then while using the front foot as a pivot we shifted clockwise to punch kizami-tsuki.
