Enoeda Sensei – lunch at Marshall Street 1978
I met Enoeda Sensei and filmed him with a high speed (slow motion) 16mm film camera. Commissioned by EMI, edited by Keith Judge (Grasshopper) and the soundtrack composed by Francis Monkman of Curved Air, the result was a mysterious film, a combination of Kata and combat demo. See front and end of this video. I have the original film – about 6 minutes – and need help to telecine – anyone? It was shown on London Weekend Television. Then I showed it to the COI (Central Office of Information) and was asked to incorporate it into a TWIB – This Week in Britain – a Foreign Office series for Commonwealth countries about life in the UK – and shown here. The late Enoeda Sensei is a legend in the Shotokan karate world. May he rest in peace and I hope his followers enjoy this glimpse.
