Gran Master

The Beat Goes On

Italian soldiers are being beaten up daily by a tiny, 77-year-old Japanese grandmother – on the orders of their superior officers. Martial arts expert Keiko Wakabayshi tells them: "The physique doesn't matter." Senior officers hope the experience of being humiliated will toughen up their soldiers.

FOOTNOTE: Corporals’ punishment.
