The Word is Karate

Watch this great video of Michael DePasquale's (Sr) dojo (Yoshitsune JuJitsu). You will notice many great aspects of traditional training: uniforms, one-step sparring, makiwara, breaking, self-defense, ukemi (falling), and kata (forms). It seems to be a documentary as a part of a feature. Very nice!

I'm guessing this was made in the late 60s. Nice vintage clip, Nathan, a good find.
