    I have got a question to the community, and hope someone will be able to answer it:

    Who did coin the term (and when) that Funakoshi Gichin (1868-1957) is the „Father of Modern Karate(do)“?

    Thank you!

    Welcome to MartialTalk, Thomas.

    That's a good question. And I'm wondering who the father of Modern Karate-do is today?
