Best Karate Expert Ever

Who was the best Karate expert ever?

I am sure that everyone has their own opinion about that. However, based on my research for the Hawaii Karate Museum I suspect that the best Karate expert ever was probably a hidden bushi or hermit, someone whose name is not even known.

Remember that the great Karate "masters" we know about often went to learn from these hidden experts. So what does that tell you?

Today, we learn about Karate experts as part of marketing campaigns designed to sell things: memberships, rank, titles, seminar, videos, books, etc. We know what marketing people want us to know.

Trust me, some of the Karate experts we know nothing about were truly great!
