Product Description

(Remastered from a new 4K scan!) Real Fights! Real Karate! Real Japan! In the 1930’s, three dedicated disciples- Taikan, Choei and Giryu- are taught by esteemed karate master Shibara atop a remote mountain dojo. When the military police try to seize control of the training hall, the three students defend their master and defeat the police with Choei sustaining a debilitating injury. On his deathbed, the master instructs his students to refine their skills and carefully choose the most worthy successor to inherit his prized black belt. The only two viable candidates, Taikan and Giryu, each set on their individual paths to hone their martial skills and fully absorb their master’s teachings until the fateful day when they will meet again to put their skills to the ultimate test. Japanese language with English subtitles.

Review

A thinking person’s martial arts saga. --Variety

The martial arts are excellent in this movie. The scenery… is reason (enough) to see this movie but the Karate is spectacular. --David Ito, Akito Center, Los Angeles

At both times cerebral and stirring, there are exuberant and complex characters with more than enough excitement to not only cater to the art crowd but those seeking some intense, bone shattering action. The highest accolades for everyone involved. --Kung Fu Fandom
