About Kyokushin Karate / Mas Oyama / Founder

KYOKUSHIN, in Japanese means "Ultimate Truth". The name was selected by our founder, Masutatsu (Mas) Oyama to describe the pinnacle of martial arts training. Not an end result, but a never ending path to the point where dedication, perseverance and sweat meets strength, humility and wisdom. Kyokushin has influenced many of the "Full-Contact" schools of karate, emphasizing realistic combat, physical toughness, and practicality in its training curriculum.

Kyokushin Karate is more than just a martial art for self-defence; it is Budō Karate and encompasses an entire system of well-being for the individual and teaches skills and attitudes that will last a lifetime.

Positives of the training include; discipline, respect, exercise regimen, confidence and a social atmosphere.

The classes are very structured and beginners are welcomed, and regardless of age, sex and physical capabilities, anyone can start training in Kyokushin Karate and enjoy it.
