The Karate of Choki Motobu
By Chosei Motobu

At long last the fighting karate of Choki Motobu is revealed by his son Chosei in this video. Motobu is an early 20th century karate-ka and teacher and acknowledged as one of the most capable fighters of his time. He taught many famous students and his defeat of a boxer in Japan at the age of 60 helped popularize karate to the masses. This video includes the history of this style and its founder. Seen for the first time in action is the famed Jiyu Hon Kumite, Motobu’s famous 12 fighting drills – the close-in man-on-man fighting techniques that distinguished his art from other early karate masters who stressed kata. Those who have only seen these drills in still photos will marvel at the intricacies of technique and the entry and unbalancing that can only be seen in live action. Included too are the Motobu system of Naihanchi kata 1 & 2. Filmed in Los Angeles. 40 minutes.

New Gladiators

Just released. A never before seen karate classic.

The film has been found and restored.

"New Gladiators" is a karate film financed by the late Elvis Presley, but never released. It features some of the 1970's greatest karate champions, following their travels, competitions and their thoughts during competitions in Europe and the US.

The music score is performed by David Crosby and Graham Nash.

The film shows some truly great action when competition was rough and tumble. Fights were hard, and there was a lot of contact at a time when protective equipment was minimal.

The film includes a final match between Roy Kurban (now a judge in Texas) and Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, one of the classic matches of all times in sport karate.

The film features Ed Parker, Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, Ron Marchini, Eric Lee, Mike Stone, Roy Kurban, Emil Farkas, as well as international fighters, such as England's Ticky Donovan and Geert Lemmens from Belgium.
