Known as “The God of Judo”, this DVD contains 62 minutes of demonstration footage taken of Kyuzo Mifune Sensei as a 73 year-old 10th dan. This was originally released as “Kamiwaza, Mifune 10th dan” and had been edited down to a 30-minute demonstration film. Thankfully, the cut footage has been found and we can now see the entire demonstration with English subtitles!
This 5 foot 4 inch, 110-pound master displays his unique technique, easily overpowering much larger opponents. A must for any Budo collection, this disc includes bonus footage in the form of a 16-minute documentary film titled “The secrets of Judo and martial virtues of Japan”, shot when Mifune Sensei was 9th dan.
