Hey All,

I am a newly registered user!

I'm 15 and I study Kyokushin Karate at a local dojo ( I am going for a junior black belt soon ). This site appears to be very informative and needless to say, I will be asking some questinos

The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle.

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

Practice doesn't make perfect. Perfect Practice makes perfect.

Welcome to fightingarts dude!
Even though you only have two arms you can still block with your forearms.

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
In Budo, -Al
