The Real Miyagi -- the man behind it all
22 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

The Real Miyagi (2015) is a wonderful documentary by Kevin Derek about the life of one of the greatest karate masters of all times. This documentary exquisitely reflects the highlights of the life of Fumio Demura from his beginnings to the present time. These highlights include not only the successes and challenges Demura has experienced through the incredible journey of his life and career, but also amazing stories of family, friendship, and loss. Fumio Demura is the Real Miyagi, the man behind it all. He is known to anyone who is involved with martial arts for being a true master of honor and precision. Kevin Derek does a fantastic job in presenting the life of Fumio Demura, beautifully depicted through photos, memories, and testimonies of several famous actors, a few masters of martial arts, and his many students and followers to people, such as myself, who are not associated with martial arts. I would like to thank everyone involved in making this film. Watching the documentary was a remarkable experience for me.
