“Clive Layton, in his book ‘Karate Master : The Life and Times of Mitsusuke Harada’ he describes Sensei Harada as ‘One of the last disciples of the legendary Gichin Funakoshi and Shigeru Egami’. This in many ways conveys exactly the background of this Master of Karate-Do. Here in this interview, he speaks about his beginnings in karate, the influence of Sensei Yoshitaka and Egami and the development of his own karate. We have also included a small piece ‘Word about the Master’ written by Roy Margetts – student of Sensei Harada who helped us organise this interview.
Many thanks to Marie Kellett, Roy Margetts and Sensei Harada himself himself for being so helpful in bringing this interview to TSW. Many thanks to Roy Margetts for his kind use of photography – Shaun Banfield 08″
