Koichi Kashiwaya Sensei – Kaiten video by Fraser – 1973

This is one of the earliest martial arts videos of our Chief Instructor, Koichi Kashiwaya Sensei. It shows some of his earlier days as envoy for Soshu Koichi Tohei Sensei and Ki Society circa 1973. The filmmaker, Fraser, connected the shokushu concept of “Just as a top spinning very rapidly becomes steady, the most rapid movement results in calm.” Calming soundtrack accompanies this great video, frozen in time. Enjoy!
