2006 MIYAGI CHOJUN FESTIVAL DVD SET REVIEW

The 2006 Miyagi Chojun Festival, which was held in Niagara Falls, Canada, was one of the most successful and memorable events in IOGKF history. The Festival featured not only a demonstration from IOGKF Masters, but also a fantastic Gasshuku and most recent World Championships.

The IOGKF 2006 MCF commemorative DVD set will help you relive, or be a part of, the events that took place, right from your own living room! With a total running time of over 3 hours of professionally filmed footage, this is another must have DVD for your growing martial arts library.

Disc one of this two disc set features, in their entirety, all of the finals of the IOGKF World Championships in perfect clarity. Both Male and Female, Kata and Kumite in single and team set ups!

Also included is the 2006 IOGKF Masters demonstration which features performances from senior instructors such us:

  • Sensei Morio Higaonna – Suparimpei, Kakie and body conditioning.
  • Sensei Bakkies Laubscher – Sesan.
  • Sensei Kazuo Terauchi – Kanryo Higaonna Sanchin and 2 on 1 Kumite.
  • Sensei Linda Marchant – Self Defence against four attackers.
  • Sensei Sydney Leijenhorst – Ground fighting.
  • Sensei Eric Higaonna – Shisochin
  • Sensei Kenzo Donozo – Shotokan Kata & Yakusoku Kumite
  • Sifu Hung Ting Seng – Tai Chi Push Hands

All this alone is enough to wet any serious Karate-ka’s appetite, but wait there is more!

Disc two of this set features a training montage from the actual festival. If you competed or took part in the training at this event, there is a very good chance you will be seen in this section of the DVD.

This disc also includes the IOGKF Symposium Series. You will have available to you:

  • Sensei Morio Higaonna’s rare lecture on the early history of Goju-ryu.
  • Dr. Karen Weisman’s explanations on the anatomy of the knee.
  • Sensei Robert E. Ellis’ lecture on combating a new epidemic.

You may be thinking, 2006 was so long ago, why buy this DVD now? The documentary made on Higaonna Sensei performing Kata in the 1970’s at Yoyogi Dojo is still the largest selling piece of IOGKF related merchandise in the world today. Footage that was relevant then, is still relevant now and the same applies for the 2006 MCF commemorative 2 disc DVD set.

This amazing DVD set can be ordered from the IOGKF Administrative office.
