Welcome!

If you wouldn't mind could you share with us what it is like training in kyokushin karate? I have heard a lot of good reviews but never really from someone who actually practiced it. Thanks

Matt

Hey Matt

I really enjoying practising Kyokushin Karate but I can't really compare it with any other MA, as I do not do any others, but I will also be taking up Wing Chun Kung Fu next year.

The Dojo that I attend is VERY small with only three seniors, my sensei is 4th or 5th dan and there are two nidans. In addition, there are about 5 students including me in attendance.

As such, our facilities aren't too great and we train in a rented church hall.

Kyokushin isn't that hard core that you would expect it to be, probably because I am only a junior myself and we aren't allowed to participate in full-contact, for safety reasons.

Welcome to the forums and thanks for the introduction.
Three yudansha and a handful of mudansha sounds awesome to me! I've always enjoyed the smaller groups, though it is too bad that your facilities are sub-par. I trained in an ancient warehouse for years, so I understand.
Best of luck to you in your training
