Fighter in the Wind – full movie

A young Korean man 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.

Fighter in the Wind is a 2004 South Korean film. It is based on the Japanese book Karate Baka Ichidai which is a fictionalized account of karate competitor Choi Yeung-Eui (최영의, 崔永宜) who went to Japan during World War II to become a fighter pilot but found a very different path instead. He changed his name to Masutatsu Oyama (大山倍達) and went across the country, defeating martial artists one after another. This film concentrates on the period when he is still young, and developing his famous karate style, Kyokushin. The film was the seventh highest-grossing Korean film of 2004 with 2,346,446 admissions sold nationwide.
