This site is based on my daily practice of traditional Shotokan Karate-Do. I'm a Japan and international instructor based in Oita City. My dojo constantly has high-level trainees from all over Japan and, occassionally karateka from abroad, seeking true budo. More than anything else, unlike the majority of other karate-do websites, this page is primarily dedicated to training itself; that is, Karate-Do as a vehicle for holistic development.

TVNZ footage to be uploaded (on Asai Memorial Day)
More Youtube footage to be released on
INTERNATIONAL TETSUHIKO ASAI MEMORIAL DAY
I've uploaded the nationally broadcasted footage, of Sensei's TV interview, courtesy of Television New Zealand. This clip will be made public on Youtube, on August 15th (Japan time), for the one year memorial of Asai Sensei's passing. As you will see by Sensei's last comment, he achieved what he said would, and left the world as a hard training karateka. I believe this footage is a fitting tribute, to a wonderful person and world class budoka.
Now that I have access to the software, I'll be able to contribute more more footage, as promised, and requested by so many people, from around the world.
I truly hope this video clip is source of enjoyment and inspiration for everyone.
As a preview, here are some stills from the footage:
