    Do you, by any chance, know which organization/style was represented for the karate section of the documentary?

      To my knowledge it was Shotokan and the JKA of old mate.

        Thanks, man. That's what I figured; you have to give JKA some credit on their ability to get as much publicity as they could. At least back then.

            nope, not shotokan. first guy (the one that hits the train) has his own style, but i don't remember the name (google seems to suggest something like "shobu-kai"), and the other section is hayashi-ha shito-ryu (in fact the one featured is the style founder, teruo hayashi).

                  first post.

                  the blokes name hitting the locomotive, chopping the Australian beer bottles mind you and breaking the bricks is Fujimoto Sadaharu from Tokyo. I think he must be in his mid 70s now. that documentary was done in the early 80s.

                  He is the founder of Shobukai Karate. i think there is a branch or branches in Australia and Hungary. He is currently an 8th or 9th dan and also holds a high dan ranking iai although you can correct me on that. I also believe his teacher is/was Kinjo Hiroshi.

                  I wrote to him in 1991, travelled to Tokyo and spent some time training at his Dojo. He had quite a few students and we trained on the bottom floor of his two story house. Had an incredible time and he treated me very well. It was a terrific experience.

                  But since that time, I haven't seen him or been back to Tokyo.

                        Good documentary. I enjoyed it, but don't care for the title. I little cheezy and very Western. I do like the beach training scenes. Our club is close to a beach and we train a few times a year on the beach. Oh, the places sand will GO!

                          I never liked the title either. Great documentary. I've owned it since it was on VHS.

                              The original title was 'Nichiei Bujutsu'. It wasn't till later that the English version came out. Some great footage though- Teruo Hayashi doing kobudo and karate. "Tetsu' Fujimoto beating up a train, Nakamura Taizaburo charging down a 'bayonet lane' and cutting wara. I saw this back in '86 for the first time.
