Kyokushin Karate
« on: August 17, 2018, 12:51:51 AM »
Kyokushin Karate is sometimes called as the strongest karate, it's O-Sensei and Founder is the late great Mas Oyama who gained popularity for being a strong man killing a bull with his bare hands. 

I've trained in this style for a couple of years and to tell you frankly, it was the hardest training I've had and the most painful.  Kyokushin stresses power and body conditioning.  It primarily uses short low shin kicks to hurt your opponents legs and keep  his mobility in check.  Once you've achieved this then it's  time to attack the body and the head.  My Shihan (master) told me once that this kind of karate style is like being a lumberjack  who uses an axe to cut trees but we use our shins as blades to  destroy the opponent's legs and body .

This is my first time hearing about Kyokushin karate. It looks hard if it need a lot power and body conditioning. It look dangerous and I think you may hurt yourself without proper training.
