    Mas Oyama was one strong dude when he was in his prime. I doubt most people would like to have tangled with him if given a choice. There is a story where he punched a telephone pole and left an imprint of his fist in the thing.

    I would disagree -
    Kyokushin is the style
    Kyokushinkai is a person who trains in the style
    Kyokushinkaikan is where the person who trains in the style trains

    Silly white folks...

    Also if you think the Chinese judges are any worse then the Japanese judges take a look at the WKO's world cup last year - the judges robbed the Ukranian guy... Even the Tsukagoshi knew he'd been beat.

    BUT did anyone else see the WKO's all Japan Tournament (I caught it on TV last night)? DAMNED Tsukamoto brought his A GAME to that one! I've never seen Suzuki knocked out in a competition!

    I'd disagree with that statement if I knew how folks in the US trained in karate or if I'd ever been in boot camp...

    I can't imagine that training karate in the US is that different from training karate in Japan - except I'd have an easier time understanding the guys in the US...

    yeah, you'd think there'd be less mcdojoism in japan just because there's so much choice in japan with clear lineages that ****, your likelihood of being able to fool people is relatively low.

    bujinkan - located where?
    shotokan - when did they do away with any form of contact sparing?
    etc. etc. etc...

    why would lineages be any clearer here then in the states? this is the country that practically invented larping/cosplay/etc. why would you think it would be any better/different here?

    move to the mainland - make up a lineage to okinawa - noones going to check or verify...
