Gichin Funakoshi is the father of Japanese karate – of that there is no doubt. He is the one who brought Karate from Okinawa to Japan in 1922. He is undoubtedly a man of commitment and his determination to teaching the world Karate is now manifested in that Webster’s Dictionary lists Karate. Funakoshi can be seen performing kata and also doing ippon kumite much later in his life, in post war Japan. There was only one Gichin Funakoshi and his reputation as a scholar is only succeeded by his skill in bringing Karate to the rest of the world. This double DVD set is an absolute must for any who have never seen him perform.
