Editorial Reviews

A young Korean Taekwondo competitor arrives in Japan near the end of World War II with hopes of being a fighter pilot, but ends up on the streets battling racism, organized crime, occupying American servicemen, and his own fear of failure as a martial artist. He retires to the wilderness for two years to train his body in the art of karate and returns to take on the world.

"Fighter in the Wind" (aka. Baramui Paito, 2004) is the story of Choi Bae-dul, a real-life legendary martial arts figure who, during his peak, defeated hundreds of martial arts experts in Japan and around the world, or to be more precise, the film is based on the manga (Japanese comic) based on the martial artist's life. Choi Bae-Dul or otherwise known as Matsutatsu Ayama fought more than 270 fighters and most of them were beaten with a single blow; his fights never lasted for more than three minutes. Choi Bae-Dul was dubbed as the `GODHAND', a living, breathing manifestation of the Japanese warrior maxim `ichi geki hissatsu' (one strike, certain death) and this style embodied his belief as the supreme level of Karate. Bae-Dul was also known for his powerful kicking strength. Choi Bae-Dul also fought and won 300 successive matches in the Kumite during his later years. He is also the founder of Kyo Kushin karate, a style that millions of students still practice today.

Much of the film takes place during World War II and is set in Japan. The first half of the film follows the adventures of a young Choi Bae-Dul (Yang Dong-Geun), whose desire to become a pilot takes a side-winding nose dive when death and humiliation destroy his dreams. He stows away in a freighter to Japan to become an aviator. Choi Bae-Dul has experienced many hardships as a Korean in Japan, much of it is discrimination. After experiencing a devastating humiliation at a marketplace, he is tagged as the "pant-wetter" and he is aided by a fellow Korean who trains him in the martial arts. Things aren't as simple for a Korean in Japan, and when his master is killed by the Yakuza during a melee, Choi becomes more resolved in learning KARATE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Version September 28, 2010

Good movie, but for those who know the real story of Mas Oyama can get a bit frustrated.
Does not show his training in Shotokan on in Goju Ryu. In the movie he has a Taekkyon master and he learns his Karate alone, after his master is killed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mas Oyama's Story October 20, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excelent movie. Masutatsu Oyama, more commonly known as Mas Oyama, was a karate master who founded Kyokushinkai Karate. The movie relates part of his life, his suffering and his willing to become the stongest man in the world.
Whoever is in the path of the empty hand, must watch it.
