Kyokushin Kai Karate
Often referred to as the "world's strongest karate", the style of Kyokyshin was founded by Mas Oyama in 1953, though it was not known as Kyokushin at that time. Oyama opened his "Oyama Dojo" in what was essentially a grass lot in a central part of Tokyo: Mejiro ward. Oyama's style was named "Kyokushin" during a ceremony in 1957, just one year after moving into their first real dojo, a former ballet school behind Rikkyo University.
This class teaches the use of punching, elbow, knee , & kicking techniques. The lesson begins with a warm up, then it is on to some strength and conditioning training . Skipping, medicine balls, body weight exercises, plyometric training, agility drills and circuits are just some of the methods used to increase anaerobic and functional fitness. The main lesson comprises of shadow sparring, solo drills, partner drills , pad work and bag work. The lesson finishes with a cool down.
