Paying homage to the famous Japanese Film director Akira Kurosawa. Kurosawa redefined the action film with his samurai epics set in Japan’s medieval past. Two of his famous films are Seven Samurai (1954) and Yojimbo (1961).
The original owner/creator of Ronin Brand (Ken Lee) was a personal friend of Akira. Kurosawa whenever he came to NYC would drop in and visit us at Kinji San MAS in Brooklyn. In 1992 he presented our store , Kinji San an Exclusive Akira Kurosawa award for most Recognized Traditional Martial Arts Supplies.
The Artist/designer Blackout Brother is a very big fan of Kurosawa and designs toys based off his characters. He was honored and excited to work on this project for us.
