    Regarding the Strongest karate videoclips.
    While really enjoyable from a historical perspective, they show really outdated fighting compared to the kyokushin fighting of today. That movie was made just after the rules had been introduced and few had learned how to fight under them. Many tried to fight "point karate" style, and a few even tried to fight from formal stances.

    Modern kyokushin is much more streamlined and effective in its techniques. And modern training methods employed by top competition fighters is much more scientific and effective than the "enthusiastic" but often detrimental methods used back then.

    For a more modern kyokushin approach and modern competition techniques, take a look at the "born to be the strongest" DVD series released by the shinkyokushin organization.

    As mentioned, you mean "Fighting black kings", and that is the same movie as the "strongest karate" linked to in youtube.
    Its alternate names for the same movie, as "fighting black kings" is a bit too blacksploitation.

    There is also a Japanese, longer, movie called strongest karate, but the one linked to here is identical to fighting black kings.

    They don't. Hence the highly successful Japanese version of the Two Ronnies' "Four Candles / Fork Handles" sketch.

    I want Yo screwdrivers please. No no, YO screwdrivers. Ha ha ha ha ha, etc.

He knew just how far to push the students and as we learned to take it the intensity went up. The actual techniques of breathing, tensing and twisting sideways are pretty simple, but it takes DOING it to learn it. It took me to a whole 'nother level and was really valuable to my development as a ma.
    This is so so important for successful knockdown karate fighting. I think it was the single best thing I learned from it. Taking ridiculous body shots with just rotation and tensing while still maintaining your structure should be applicable to every style.

    It's not ambiguous to indigenous Japanese, just to us, even moderately skilled speakers still encounter this issue.
