Takeda Yasukiyo Shotokan Ni-dan This is the translation of my lecture given on June 18, 1977, to the pupils of the Karate hall run by the instructor George Takahashi.My lecture was given at his brother Gene Takahashi's house in Los Angeles.English translation by George Takahashi, Professor, UCLA Master Funakoshi was a person of small frame and very gentle disposition.His calmness hid his great passion, energy, and dedication to the promotion of Karate-do.As I remember it, the first book he wrote was entitled, Karate Jutsu (karate technique).But, just as the father of modern judo, Master Jigoro Kano, systematized the old ju-jutsu and established modern Judo (gentle way), Master Funakoshi selected Katas and techniques from among the different styles of karate and established them as budo and called it Karate-do (way of karate).The personality of Sensei (Funakoshi) can be described as one of authority without pushiness ; he was outwardly gentle but as strong as steel inside.I believe it is because of such a personality that he was able to succeed in the great task of infusing spiritual qualitites into the art.In regards to the techniques of karate, he was constantly thinking of how to perfect the art.For instance he advocated that the toes turn inward and the heels outward in the Kibadachi stance.After many tests he concluded that it is stronger to face the opponent in the front stance.He always stressed the importance of researching the meaning of each move in Katas.I used to hear from karate students of other styles that Shotokan overstresses Kata training and that they doubted whether it will work in actual combat situations.But I am firmly convinced that their criticisms were unfounded.Moreover, I had faith and confidence in what Sensei believed.In the 1930s karate was only taught at a few of the university clubs and at the famous Mitsukoshi Department Store in Tokyo.Sensei would visit each of these clubs to give instruction.I developed my interest in karate sometime before I met Sensei in person.
