At Kyokushin-kan, our mission is to DEFEND, REVITALIZE, and ADVANCE the teaching of Kyokushin’s founder, Sosai Masutatsu Oyama.
Defending Sosai’s teaching means preventing any deterioration of the best that Kyokushin was during Sosai’s lifetime.
Revitalizing it means, in some cases, reintroducing elements of Kyokushin training that helped make Kyokushin what it is, but that were no longer popular at the time of Sosai’s death.
Advancing Sosai’s legacy means allowing the style to develop into realms that it may not have yet gone during Sosai’s lifetime, but that which we believe he would have supported.
KYOKUSHIN-KAN BUDO KARATE
The most important element of Kyokushin karate is the BUDO SPIRIT which encompasses elements of proper behavior, courtesy, the spirit of Osu, and good will towards man, in addition of course to fighting prowess. To not forget the importance of human relationships, friendships, the Sensei-Student and Senpai-Kohai (senior-junior) relationships.
Sosai Mas Oyama created a full-contact style of tournament competition in order to popularize budo karate.
The reason Kyokushin fighters become the strongest under Mas Oyama’s teaching was that they trained for real-life application.
