Shoto style Karate was founded by Gichin Funakoshi (1868-1957) in Tokyo in 1938. Funakoshi is considered to be the founder of modern karate. Funakoshi Sensei Born in 1868 Yamakawa-cho district at Okinawa. He began to study karate at the age of 11, and was a student of the two greatest masters of the time, Azato and Itosu. He grew so proficient that he was initiated into all the major styles of karate in Okinawa at the time. For Master Funakoshi, the word karate eventually took on a deeper and broader meaning through the synthesis of these many methods, becoming karate-do, literally the “way of karate,” or of the empty hand. Training in karate-do became an education for life itself. In 1921 Funakoshi first introduced Karate to Tokyo. In 1936, at nearly 70 years of age, he opened his own training hall. The dojo was called Shotokan after the pen name used by Funakoshi to sign poems written in his youth. Shotokan Karate is characterized by powerful linear techniques and deep strong stances. The first public demonstration of karate in Japan was in 1917 by Gichin Funakoshi, at the Butoku-den in Kyoto this, and subsequent demonstrations, greatly impressed many Japanese, including the Crown-Prince Hirohito, who was very enthusiastic about the Okinawan art. In 1922, Dr. Jigoro Kano, president of the kodokan judo hall, Judo, invited Funakoshi to demonstrate at the famous Kodokan Dojo and to remain in Japan to teach karate. This sponsorship was instrumental in establishing a base for karate in Japan. The reader shouldn’ t misunderstand this, however. Asai Sensei can do Karate that people would consider standard throughout the world. However, Asai Sensei has gone past that. To understand this, let’s look at Asai Sensei’s development throughout his Karate life. He studied at the famous Takushoku University Karate club. He also had many competition successes, including becoming Grand Champion (Kata and Kumite) at the 5th ALL-Japan Championships. From this success he then went on to teach many hundreds of thousands of students throughout the world, becoming a hero of traditional Karate.
This traditional Karate was used as a foundation for his future developments. As Asai Sensei traveled the world he gained a wealth of experience from other country’s fighting systems, allowing him to build on his foundations and create his own, unique style. He has endeavored to make his body as supple as a willow tree to maximize the efficiency of his style. However, to take his Karate to a higher level he has found it important to not only develops the torso, but also the head, arms and legs. From the development of each body part, his technique can spring forward like a “Thunderous Storm”. By developing the torso, arms and legs separately, it’s much more difficult for an opponent to see an attack coming. Combine this with Asai Sensei’s lightning speed, and it makes for a deadly combination.
This special training has allowed Asai Sensei to increase his strength to levels that some people would think of as super-human. However, these techniques are separate from Shotokan-Ryu, they are Asai-style Karate. Therefore, from this point onwards we would like the reader to put aside all their pre-conceptions of what Karate is. Only by doing this can you learn Asai Sensei’s Karate.
