Uechi-Ryu Karate’s curriculum outlines a warm-up (Junbi Undo), technique drills (Hojo Undo/Kihon), forms (Kata), technique applications (Yakosuku Kumite), and sparring (Kumite). After drilling individual techniques and kata, Yakosuku Kumite gives a practitioner a road map to execute techniques in combination against an attacker.
Below is a video of Yakosuku Kumite. Use this video to complement your dojo training.
