JApan 2007  |   director: NAGASAKI Shun’ichi 

Fight for spiritual values of karate during the era of growing militarization of Japan in 30s of 20th century is ongoing issue for three main characters of this movie.
In 1932 a military unit marches into a sanctuary of traditional karate in southern Kyushu. Three students that are practicing spiritual karate-do under direction of their master Shibahara Eiken are ordered to join the army and are told that from now on their dojo belongs to the army. The master orders his three students to never use karate as a weapon to kill someone and then he suddenly dies. Among three friends who will become his successor? will it be Taikan, Giryū or Chōei that will inherit his black belt? And which one of them will find correct path in karate when the real values of karate are constantly doubted by officials? Nagasaki’s movie is very authentic because the leading roles are played by real karateka. Naka Tatsuya is well known also in the Czech Republic and Yagi Akihito is a representative of old karate clan from Okinawa. The whole movie is a real karate concert.
