Master Ochiai is world-renowned for his spectacular demonstrations. His apple-cutting technique shown below serves as a testament to what is possible when we develop true self-mastery.* This video was taken in 2007 at “Masters of the Rising Sun,” a live martial arts performance by Hokubei Shihankai (North American Japanese Masters Association).
*Please keep in mind that we do not specifically teach this technique or techniques like it in class. Master Ochiai only uses the apple-cutting technique in his demonstrations to show the physical and mental power that one can acquire through proper traditional martial arts training.
