Hirokazu Kanazawa


 Master Hirokazu Kanazawa was born in 1931 in the Prefecture of Iwate in Japan.


 Although, his father and uncle were experts of Jiu Jitsu, Kanazawa Sensei has begun his martial art training with Kendo and Judo. Later on he also trained some English Boxing. Some school friend introduced him to Karatedo and, after he decided to change University to join TAKUSHOKU University which at that time was known to have the best karatedo dojo in Japan.


 The rest is very simple, Kanazawa Sensei trained harder and harder so to reach the level that he has nowadays. Kanazawa Shihan is one of the latest students of O’Sensei Gichin FUNAKOSHI, the founder of modern traditional karatedo.
