|Appears in||Shenmue I|
Shozo Mizuki (Japanese: 水木省三) is an elderly homeless man who lives at the New Yokosuka Harbour District. Quite how he came to be homeless is unknown. Whilst Ryo is working at the Harbour he comes into contact with Shozo when he saves him from being attacked by the Mad Angels. In return, Shozo provides Ryo with any information about the gang he has heard, and even shows him a few martial arts moves. He claims to have lived at the harbour for more than three years and as such knows a lot about it. He also practices martial arts in the empty warehouses when he can. He can often be found sitting under the fire escape by the Harbour Lounge.
 Learn Shadow Step
Walk past the Warehouse No.18 after work and if he is there, he will teach you the move. Additionally, he will teach you an extension to this move the day after he first teaches you it, just go and see him again at the same place as before after work.
 Learn Cross Charge
To get this move, you must have already learned both versions of the Shadow Step from Shozo. The day after being taught the extension to the Shadow Step, go and see Shozo at the usual place, beside Warehouse #18 after work, and he will teach you this move.
