I also had a problem of fighters rushing in on top of me. I found effective a side kick in the belly, if you get him with it he prob wont rush like a bull again. but it is all about timing stay well away about your leg lenth usually before sombody rushes in they lean forward a bit, sone as he does this strike with that side kick hard.

You need to step in and apply pressure. Kick low to the legs and punch around his guard, then move in a circle around his line of force and attack again.
Again, when you move backwards you are open to all attacks, you must step in and attack, then move to the side and attack again.
Do not allow him the space to build momentum, you must apply pressure and press the attack from the angle by his weakest side.
Offence is the best defence, use powerful and effective strikes to make him think twice about charging in.

Oh and just in regards to the Karate master's unbelievable claims of impossible feats. Have you guys ever seen the Shaolin Monks when they tour around doing their shows? Man it's absolutly amazing what they can do.
Similarly, it is also amazing what a man or woman is capable of when they have dedicated their whole life at an average of ten to twelve hours per day to a single worthwhile purpose.
Just because in the context of your own life, it is impossible, doesn't mean that it actually is.

what my instructor always said was "salubungin mo" which is filipino for meet his force. when he charges at you extend a straight kick right up into his solar plexus. or if you dont like force-to-force, pivot around to his rear at the last moment throw a quick combo then dance a la matador

oizuki, ive seen a japanese karate sensei, i forget the name but will find out if you request that demonstrated the power of oizuki by literally jumping in a bullring with a very large powerful bull and waiting there to get charged at then,he just stood there and as the bull charged at him he did oizuki and killed it instantly




Could you mean Mas Oyama? He's killed several bulls, however, I believe most were with a shuto-uchi to the horn, severing it from the head, and the bulls bled to death.

Well, if this is JUST for point type sparring...I'd personally say as he starts to charge, feint a retreat, and then maybe try a turning side kick preferably to the solarplexus. Now, I ain't superbly high up there in rank in MA, but that's just my two cents.

Regarding the karate master versus the bull...

Not quite b******t, but certainly worth questioning. The karate man was Masutatsu Oyama, founder of kyokushinkai. There ARE pictures of him killing a bull with a punch to the skull AND of him chopping a horn off with shuto. Some of these pictures were published in his first book. (This is Karate is the title I think.)

I have heard tell that the conditions of this "contest" (ridiculous and cruel if you ask me) were less than fair and that the bull was small and old. In fairness, Oyama was a very strong man and kyokushin is very strong karate. As I get older, however, I do question the validity of some of these legends.

Did he kill a bull? Yes, that seems to be documented. Is it really that impressive? I don't know. Is it relevant to this thread? Well, Oyama was often described as something of a bull himself, so perhaps this is not the best strategy for smaller guys like me.

Happy training.

David
