Info about "Morio Higaonna video"
Morio Higaonna (born December 25, 1938) is a prominent Okinawan karate practitioner who is the founder and Chief Instructor of the International Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate-do Federation (IOGKF). He is a holder of the highest rank in Goju-ryu karate, 10th dan. Martial arts scholar Donn Draeger (1922–1982) reportedly once described him as “the most dangerous man in Japan in a real fight.”
He began studying Shōrin-ryū karate at the age of 14 with his father and then with his friend Tsunetaka Shimabukuro. It was Shimabukuro who recommended that Higaonna learn Goju-ryu karate at Chojun Miyagi‘s garden dojo (training hall). In the late 1950s, he began training under Ei’ichi Miyazato (the most senior student of Chojun Miyagi, 1888–1953, who founded the Goju-ryu style) and An’ichi Miyagi (who was reportedly like an adopted son of, though not related to, C. Miyagi).
