Kyokushin Karate Savage Conditioning Drills

Kyokushin Karate is a full contact style of karate often referred to as the strongest style in the World. It was originally developed by Sosai Masutatsu Oyama in the 1950s. Translated from Japanese, it means "the society of the ultimate truth". It is considered as one of the most challenging forms of karate, placing great emphasis on combat effectiveness.

The Kyokushin karate system is not only based on traditional Karate like Goju Ryu and Shotokan, but also incorporates elements from other combat sports such as Boxing, Kick Boxing and Muay Thai into its fighting style.

Kyokushin fighters have successfully appeared and competed in traditional Knockdown, Kickboxing and MMA events such as K-1, Pride and the UFC ( Francisco Filho, Andy Hug, Glaube Feitosa, Semmy Schilt, Georges St-Pierre, multiple times winner of the Worlds Strongest Man title and MMA fighter Mariusz Pudzianowski and Hollywood actor and fighter Dolph Lundgren, to name a few).
