I believe it was filmed just prior to Nakayama Sensei bringing the Best Karate Series out. Heard a great story about them filming it. they were all there waiting to film their bits for the video. They had a group of Kohai there to be the 'dummies for various things to be filmed. Enoeda Sensei was a 'bit late' Walked in (the room goes quiet!) He asks what they wanted from him. discussed it. Dropped into wide splits for a few seconds. Said right lets go. Ran thru it once medium pace. then said shoot this now - apparently the Camera man suggested 'More practice needed to get it correct for the shoot' = which was responded to by a glare from Master Enoeda who was not amused. He did it in one take and as you can see he poleaxed the lad. Enoeda immediately Showed his respect and said his Goodbyes to Nakayama Sensei and simply walked out - JOB DONE! Classic Enoeda but Bern Rose also says that Sensei was always ready for photo takes etc and very rarely needed to do anything twice!
I never met Sensei Enoeda, but every one that has tells me he had that "sumptin special" about him all the time. I recall my instructor saying that he was not a big man but he had a big Aura about him that made him feel special, similar but different to other masters. Dingman Sensei said he met him one time and sat and talked with him and his instrctor and all he said was "now that man got it, he knows Karate". those are high words of praise from my instructor I tell you!
Actually James Enoeda Sensei was quite big for a Japanese person of his era. He wqsn't a giant but extremely strong and YES had that presence about him that would literally fill a room - even in a room that wasn't filled with awe - inspired Karateka. I have seen him draw curious stares from strangers he was jst oozing with confidence and an indominitable spirit. You could very easily imagine him defending his clan on a Japanese Battlefield centuries ago.
Take another look at Kim Watts awesome painting of Enoeda Sensei - you can definitely grasp the essence of the man in her wonderful artwork!
