Fujita Koheiji I was tachiyaku actor, who was active in ˘shibai in Kamigata from the second half of the 1660s to the second half of the 1690s. He was born in Ise and started his career in tabi shibai. He was the first jitsugotoshi in Kabuki history.
"Fujita Koheiji often used to say that when one slaps the scabbard of one's sword, unless one pulls back one's left leg and glares straight into one's opponent's eyes as one does so, it does not seem effective." (from K˘on's "Zoku Nijinshű", a sequel to Kaneko Ikk˘'s book "Nijinshű" ("Dust in the Ears"), translated by Charles J. Dunn and Torigoe Bunz˘ in "The Actors' Analects")
