This long-awaited documentary captures the life of master Fumio Demura, the man that's influenced a bevy of Hollywood’s elite over the last 50 years. Those talents include Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee, Steven Seagal and many more. It was the stunt double role that he landed in The Karate Kid, and the friendship he formed with actor Pat Morita, that would forever change his life. Mr. Morita fashioned his unforgettable character, Mr. Miyagi, off of Master Demura which earned him an Oscar Nomination in 1985. This is the story of a man they call The Real Miyagi.
