    Nah, I enjoy MT too much right now.

    However, I can already see that I won't do this forever,
    mainly because from my experience, either you just simply take too much damage*, or you end up doing some cardio-ish stuff.

    So, at some point, I'll quite probably switch styles again,
    and karate seems like fine alternative.
    - Now, I am usually a slow learner when it comes to MAs,
    and so I feel like it's always good to have a theoretical base.

    Now, it's not like I will do a lot of research; just like, say, BJJ has the book written by Saulo Ribeiro, I wondered if Kyokushin had, like,
    one standard manaul that everyone reads. :)

    Now, which the books would you is that?

    I get the impression Mas Oyama's "Philosophy of Karate" is that book, but that's more like life phoilosophy than training-related stuff, right?




    *Since this has come up elsewhere quite recently, this is not me being internet-tough:
    It's just that I've had problems with hand-injuries for years,
    and that my knees and legs are taking damage as well.
    I won't be one of those lucky ageless guys that do MT until they are 40,
    that's for sure.

    I think that only happens for highly competitive athletes when they burn themselves out

    True philosophy of Karate is more about life philosophy than training

    Manuals are "What is Karate", "This is Karate" & "Advanced Karate"

    Other regional manuals written by branch chiefs exist but i don't know them all

    The Karate encyclopedia is more of a syllabus & manual for IKO1

    Thankfully, it's not that bad, but I see that I am not kicking the bag like with 20. Also, training injuries that hinder me walking or writing would not be convenient, out of job reasons. (Teachers should not have black eyes and bloody knuckles.) Old Rafe is old. :sad5:

    Gentlemen,

    So, I got myself a (very cheap) book about Mas Oyama's philosophy and technique.
    And now, I am to find out that apparently, his main life accomplishment seems to be the alleged mutillation he performed on one of our bovine brethren.

    Let me put this in more blatant and plebejan words:

    How the hell am I supposed to take his **** seriously from then on?!

    o.O

    Oyama "Bullkiller", WTF?!

    This has been observed before: a domestic bull, not trained to fight like his Spanish-bullring counterpart supposedly is, standing there and wondering why some guy is screaming and running at him.

    It would have been more fun to see Oyama try that against a bull who is experienced at fighting to survive.

    My vote: African cape buffalo.

    They kill more lions than are killed by anything else--more, even, than are killed by gun-toting humans.

    Maybe a modern-day Oyama-wannabee could go to Africa and try this. Vid, pls.

    So Rafe, you picked up a book, saw that inter alia with other publicity stunts, Oyama committed some animal cruelty (he said one bull returned the favour) and you're all in shambles about the man's training philosophy?

    lmao.

    Nah, but what's with this? Some archaic Japanese ritual?
    A 1920's-style freakshow to legitimize Oyama's superior warriorship?

    Why would a legitimate trainer of the 20th century even do such crap?
