The best instructors, best production value, best locations and best sound-tracks: Tsunami!

Many people start karate with genuine enthusiasm only to drop out before they reach first dan. An important reason for this are the bad habits they pick up in their early training that make it difficult, if not impossible, to reach higher skill levels later on. Instruction from the leading practitioners of a style is the best supplement to local dojo training that exists. However, training in Japan/Okinawa is costly, and many of the best instructors teach only in juku (closed) dojo where attendance is by invitation only. To overcome this problem, Tsunami Productions persuaded many of the top karate instructors in the world to share their skills in a library of professionally made instructional DVDs. Strong personal connections helped overcome the prejudice against karate DVDs caused by the proliferation of

sub-standard products flooding the market. Finally a group of the very best instructors in the world agreed to teach everything from basics to advanced techniques for us with their personal recommendations (voiced over in English) so our viewers could understand not only how to do techniques, but why!
The Tsunami DVD collection programs are made in studio and on location in California with the greatest instructors in the world. They are broadcast quality, the sort of material you would see on the History and Discovery Channels, and convenient to use with menus and music/narration soundtracks which make comprehension easy and enjoyable.

Do you know why…

…Tsunami is the best?

Tsunami is a company based on a unique concept, that of bringing together a major TV Studio, the best karate masters in the world and the most qualified writers, editors and historians to produce instructional karate programs of outstanding quality. DVDs that feature multi-camera studio and location shoots, professional editing, sound and narration, as well as karate techniques and concepts which are largely unknown in the West.

What is Tsunami Productions and who is behind it?

Jones Intercable Inc. Started by Glen Jones with a $400 loan secured by his secondhand Volkswagen minibus, the company rose to be the fourth largest cable TV provider in the world. Directors were required to study Gorin No Sho by Miyamoto Musashi, Japan’s greatest swordsman, and learn to play the bagpipes.

Dragon Associates Inc. Founded in London, England, in 1968, the company became a major publisher of martial arts books from 1980. In 1983 the company opened an office in California and from 1994 cooperated with Jones Intercable Inc. in the production of more than  40 full length broadcast quality karate training programs. Our first instructor was Morio Higaonna Sensei 10th Dan Hanshi.
