    All this post does is remind us that you are not a grown ass man.

    OSU,
    Congrats on deciding to try out Kyokushin. I love it, and I hope you do too. I've heard good things about Kyokushin up in Washington, and the dojo I visited there once was great... very focused on practical fighting.

    I'll second the not worrying about kata thing. Once a month or so, our Shihan has a kata class. Once a month, it's breaking class. The rest of the month, it's drilling, learning technique, punching and kicking each other back and forth, back and forth, and then kumite. I get bruises just practicing back and forth, but then when we all fight down the line, I get more. :D

    Enjoy the endorphin rush! Oh, and the adrenaline.

    And yeah, make sure it is a school that has kumite very regularly. Little to no kumite within any given month in a Kyokushin school would be pretty confusing to me!

    Some instructors are more laid back than others. Some are very high protocol, some not so much. There's more protocol I think than you would see in an MMA gym, for sure. But that's not something I mind either. People all tend to be pretty polite, and in my dojo at least, it's a really supportive environment. You have to leave your ego at the door, and really for how much we beat the living crap out of each other, we all tend to get along quite well. I guess it goes along with that whole "an armed society is a polite society" thing. Because nobody really wants to get kicked in the side of the head with a shin, hard.

    Well except that one guy. The one who volunteers to be demoed on a lot.

    I might be that one guy.

    Anyway, enjoy learning a hard, practical, fun style! And enjoy learning to shout OSU a lot!

    OSU!

    Yes, Kata and step sparring is there. I really dislike it, you need to know it for your grades, etc. Just suck it up and do it. If doing it at full pace, etc. You'll at least get control over your strikes when there's nothing there to stop your leg / arm momentum and you should get a bit puffed, so that's a plus.

    Everything is done in Japanese, it'll take you a while to 'get it' but early on they usually say "just follow someone else" during basics.

    Sparring ... you're going to get bruised and hurt. I pretty much just wear a mouth guard and that's it. Body shots hurt work and so do kicks, your mid section, legs and shins will condition very quickly. But that's a time thing that everyone who wants to fight will naturally obtain over time.
    Well, like I said, I come from an Aikijutsu background, so Kata and **** being done in Japanese is completely familiar to me...no biggie.

    As far as getting bruised and hurt and sparring more, that's my whole point of going, so that's welcome news. Everybody (even Sirc) has been very helpful. Thanks all for the info and encouragement. I will report back, of course.

    Have fun man.

    Nothing like getting kicked in the guts and punching metal plates. Ive sparred with KK dudes before, they stand funny but they can take a solid hit.
