In this professional, full color, menu-driven, DVD Master Duessel demonstrates the 8 empty hand and 6 weapon katas taught to him by Isshinryu founder Tatsuo Shimabuku.
Over four decades of martial art training have chiseled a living legend in Isshinryu karate. Promoted to Shodan personally by Tatsuo Shimabuku in 1964, William H. Duessel has risen to become the ever promoted to 9th Dan in the 35,000 plus member Isshinryu World Karate Association (in 1990, by President Kichiro Shimabuku, 10th Dan).
The power of Isshinryu karate is evident as Master William H. Duessel executes each technique with trademark speed and form. Included are detailed applications of the movements from each kata.
