Description

Choshin Chibana Sensei was the last of the great masters of the Golden Age of karate, and one of the few to survive WWII. Apart from bring a flawless technician and a man of good manners who spoke well in public, his influence of modern Okianwan karate was immense. His students included Yuchoku Higa, the Uncle of Minoru Higa 10th Dan Hanshi, and many other notable karateka. It is fair to say that his influence on Shorin Ryu karate was profound, and for this he was recognized by his Emperor with the Order of the Sacred Treasure.
