Kanzaki Shigekazu (b. 1928) represents a link to the karate of a bygone era when karate training was a matter of survival and not of sport, and where humility and compassion represented the ultimate goals of training. Kanzaki studied To’on-ryu under Kyoda Juhatsu and is the most senior practitioner of the style in Japan today.
