Master Tatsuo Shimabuku
Performing Isshin-Ryu Kata


DVD Format
Running Time: 40 Minutes
DVD-08
1964, Master Tatsuo Shimabuku, founder of Isshin-Ryu Karate, traveled from Okinawa to Pittsburgh, PA. During this visit, he was filmed performing Isshin-Ryu Kata with an 8mm movie camera. This historic movie has the Master performing all eight Isshin-Ryu empty hand Kata, Chatan Yara No Sai and Urashi Bo.

In 1966, Master Shimabuku returned to the United States where he was once again filmed performing all Isshin-Ryu Kata in Tacoma, WA. The Master also demonstrated some self-defense techniques as well as techniques using the Bo, Sai, and Tuifa. Both historic films are included on this single DVD.

DISCLAIMER:

Both of these 8mm films were transferred to high quality reproduction tape, re-mastered and then produced in DVD format. As with any old 8mm tape, there are signs of age.  The 1964 film has a "burn spot" in Wansu Kata. Overall, the film quality is good.  The 1966 film quality is very good with the exception of the beginning of Seisan Kata. Old 8mm tapes have a tendency to "jump" at times, and this happens during the first three segments of Seisan. The rest of the film is very good.
