Asai Sensei's final international interview republished

As most of you will probably know, I conducted Tetsuhiko Asai Sensei’s final international interview, which appeared in Shotokan Karate Magazine, just a few months prior to his passing. The interview itself was conducted in Ohope, the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. It has just been republished on ‘The Shotokan Way’ online resource (

"A few weeks ago we introduced an archive interview with T. Asai from a few years ago that had been conducted by the excellent Andre Bertel – Who kindly has allowed us to use another of his interviews with this legendary Master! Here in this Interview with T. Asai, Andre Bertel yet again poses questions to try and get to the source of this man’s unique approach to karate. I would like to say a huge thank you to Andre for being kind enough to allow us to use this superb interview!" – Shaun Banfield.
