OUR NEW LOGO (WE have CHANGED OUR LOGO)
"Kyokushin" means "Ultimate Truth". Kyokushin Karate was born in the determination for the pursuit of ultimate truth of mind, technique, and body.
Karate is developed over a thousand years ago not only as a form of unarmed combat but as a way to discipline the body in order to improve the spirit. By practicing Karate, one can increase his/her alertness, self-awareness and self-confidence by conditioning the body as improving speed, strength, and co-ordination. It is to achieve the unity of body and spirit.
Kyokushin Karate has been know as "The strongest karate", not only because of the incredible feats of strength and endurance that Founder Masutatsu Oyamaperformed, but also because of the rigorous requirements of the training and tournaments.
The founder, Sosai Masu Oyama, often said that the difference between sports and the Budo Way is the path of self-discipline. Sports can always be associated with a game in some form or another where people compete for leisure, money, or fame. The Budo way is never these since it was developed from harsh-living situations where one must fight for their life in the midst of human suffering and pain - this can either be of the mental or physical kind. The Budo Way is this challenge in life itself. Kyokushin Karate was founded by a man who was dedicated to the Budo Way.
Today, registered members of Kyokushin karate exceed 10 million located at more than 120 countries making it one of the largest martial arts organization in the world.
We will train our hearts and bodies
for a firm unshaking spirit.
We will pursue the true meaning of the Martial Way,
So that in time, our senses may be alert.
With true vigor,
we will seek to cultivate a spirit of self denial.
We will observe the rules of courtesy,
respect our superiors, and refrain from violence.
We will follow our god,
and never foget the true virtue of humility.
We will look upwards to wisdom and strength,
not seeking other desires.
All our lives, through the discipline of karate,
we will seek to fulfill the true meaning of the kyokushin way.
The Eleven Mottoes of Mas Oyama
The Martial Way begins and ends with courtesy.
Therefore, be properly and genuinely courteous at all times.
Following the Martial Way is like scaling a cliff - continue upwards without rest.
It demands absolute and unfaltering devotion to the task at hand.
Strive to seize the initiative in all things, all the time guarding against actions
stemming from selfish animosity or thoughtlessness.
Even for the Martial Artist, the place of money cannot be ignored.
Yet one should be careful never to become attached to it.
The Martial Way is centered in posture.
Strive to maintain correct posture at all times.
The Martial Way begins with one thousand days and is mastered after ten
thousand days of training.
In the Martial Arts, introspection begets wisdom.
Always see contemplation on your action as an opportunity to improve.
The nature and purpose of the Martial Way is universal.
All selfish desires should be roasted in the tempering fires of hard training.
The Martial Arts begins with a point and end in a circle.
Straight lines stem from this principle.
The true essence of the Martial Way can only be realized through experience.
Knowing this, learn never to fear its demands.
In the Martial Arts the rewards of a confident and grateful heart are truly abundant.
