WHAT IS KYOKUSHIN?

Kyokushin (極真会)  translates to “The Ultimate Truth” and was created by the late Masutatsu Oyama (大山 倍達). It is often referred to as the strongest karate.

Kyokushin fighters are known world-wide for their powerful strikes, intensive training and expertise and adaptability in the ring.
