Anusheel Chakrabarty pays tribute to Sean Connery, his favourite James Bond
Anusheel’s wish was to meet him once now for him this will always be a dream, he was deeply saddened by his passing away, who died at the age of 90 last Saturday. Anusheel became his fan through his Bond movies, beside a James Bond Star and Actor he was also a Kyokushin Karate Member and practitioner too, the same Karate style Anusheel practices, that made Anusheel more fond of him. He also listed some of his favourite Sean Connery movies, must watch according to him was Dr No, Goldfinger, Thunderball, From Russia with Love, Murder on the orient express, The Untouchables, Indiana Jones & the last crusade, The League of Extraordinary.
As we all know Anusheel is Indian National Kyokushin Karate Champion & Lifetime Member of the International Karate Organization Kyokushinkaikan led by Kancho Shokei Matsui, many of us in India know or not but Anusheel wished to let the Indian audiences & Kyokushin Karate practitioners in India especially know that Sosai Mas Oyama, the founder of Kyokushin Karate-The Strongest Karate, trained James Bond Star Sean Connery. Not only did Sosai Mas Oyama train Sean Connery, but he was also granted the rank of 1st Dan Black Belt (Honorary Shodan). Anyone familiar with the militaristic training requirements set by Sosai Oyama understands what a momentous accomplishment it was to train with Sosai Oyama at Honbu in Tokyo, Japan, so much so that even the Honorary title is impressive.
Few Don’t believe it Connery know and trained with Sosai Mas Oyama. He shared those pics which he gives credit to original content/post uploader on the Internet.
The gentleman next to Sean Connery receiving his Dan Certificate from Sosai Oyama is Donn Draeger trainer, accomplished Martial Artist and choreographer for the Bond Movies. Standing Sosai Oyama and James Bond how cool was that.
Anusheel extended his heartfelt gratitude “Rest in Peace Sir and Big Osu to you, your fan and admirer” to the true legend Sean Connery, who defined James Bond, he will always live through this movies and in the hearts of his millions of fans & every Kyokushin Karate practitioners around the world.
