Newly released footage of Higaonna

Filmed by: Oleg Larionov

If you think back to our September 2010 Edition of the International newsletter, you’ll recall a Russian documentary that was made on Higaonna Sensei called ‘The history of Karate’. With the generosity of producer Oleg Larionov of Russia, we are pleased to be able to present to you the full clips of the demonstrations and explanations Higaonna Sensei gave for the documentary, along with some footage which didn’t make the final cut.
