CHIBANA Chosen

Image

Chibana was one of the most important figures in Okinawan Karate.

A student of Anko Itosu, Chibana began his karate training in the early 1900’s. His dojo training partners included names like Gichin Funakoshi and Kenwa Mabunie: his contemporaries included names like Chogun Miagi, Chutoku Kyan, Taira Shinken and many others.

In this DVD which was shot in the 1960’s by Mr. Taiju Lee, you will see the only known footage of Master Chibana. You will see him perform katas like the Naihanchis, Passai and several others. Some of this extremely rare footage was even shot in full brilliant colour, making it even more spectacular. There is also a full interview with Mr. Lee about Chibana Sensei.

RUNNING TIME ON THIS DVD IS 56 minutes.
