In this Japanese drama, a young man becomes a student of the chief martial arts adviser to the Tokyo police after he uses Kodokan judo to save the teacher's daughter from an explosion. He shows his teacher a new throw, but the teacher strongly disapproves, claiming that it is too dangerous and could kill someone. Meanwhile the young man and the daughter fall in love. Their romance is interrupted by an ambitious jujitsu expert who desires the police instructor's job and so kills the man slated to replace him. Unfortunately, another is chosen to replace the instructor. In the end, the young man and the villain fight it out, a battle that symbolizes the clash between the two types of martial arts. The young man wins and happiness ensues when he can finally be with the girl he loves.
