Masutatsu Oyama is the founder of Kyokushinkai.
He has studied a variety of different martial arts, including judo. He has also studied under master Funakoshi, master Yamaguchi, and master So Nei Chu. A famous Sosai Oyama quote about fighting is «Always remember that the true meaning of Budo is that soft overcomes hard, small overcomes large.»
Kyokushin is perceived as the most challenging and physically demanding form of karate, which also makes it the most efficient. Advanced martial arts techniques demand that its members be in exceptional physical shape. Self-defense is effective and realistic.
With more than 25 million followers in 130 countries, Kyokushin karate is one of the most prominent in the world.
Sosai Oyama used to say «If you do not overcome your tendency to give up easily, your life leads to nothing. One must try, everyday, to expand one’s limits.» Perseverance and patience are essential in accomplishing this difficult task.
Even though being physically able is important, developing the mind and spirit is also paramount. It is, in fact, the basis of the Kyokushin ideology. A perpetual quest towards spiritual attainment and intellectual development are pillars of martial arts philosophies.
