Discover the Depths of Karate: Basics and Introductory Kata Shiratori

Tracing the Origins of Karate with "Kaishu and Kitsune-ken"!

Learn "Hakutsu-ken," An Ancient Martial Art Passed Down to Elite Shitoryu Karate Practitioners

In this comprehensive DVD, Master Sobue Rikyu delves into the profound and ancient techniques of "Hakutsu-ken," a form that traces its origins back to the early Qing Dynasty. Fang Qiniang, a legendary figure known for her beauty and martial prowess, created "Hakutsu-ken" by blending her martial arts knowledge with the elegant and precise movements inspired by the crane. This form, deeply rooted in Shitoryu, is a cornerstone of advanced karate practice and is revealed in detail by Master Sobue, whose extraordinary physical capabilities belie his age of 80.
