LEE COSTA // 50 YEARS IN KARATE
“Karate is great training both physically and mentally, it can help to improve self confidence and esteem, promote fitness, will teach you defend yourself and others from attack, and give you a more positive outlook on life.”
Kyokushin Karate trains the body and mind for unarmed combat against one or more opponents for self defence.
As a club we both train for real self defence and competition.
kyokushinkai means “the ultimate truth” and is about training for real combat (i.e. self-defence) situations using realistic no-holds barred techniques.
Also Kyokushin is full contact fighting in competition, which is known as knock down
That is why Kyokushin Karate is known as the strongest Karate!
Kyokushin Karate also emphasizes the moral responsibility that comes with learning a martial art, having a strict code of conduct in the dojo (training area) and in everyday life
this makes Kyokushinkai Karate particularly benificial for children.
