Hey Shum - don't bring your bullshit onto this thread.
You know damn well where I train and what I do. I told you so.
You disagree with my assesment on Mas Oyama. Find me another in Kyokushin or any other art that has done what he did.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker. Terry Tait ain't got **** on me !!!!

The very fact that he went up into a mountain in isolation to train 10 hours a day for a year is just so badass. If it's true, of course. In addition this book also claimed that he practiced tameshiwari against trees and rocks daily to condition his hands, and managed to actually chop off a bull's horn with a knife-hand strike.
Training, and a huge set of balls I'd say.

The training part was true, as for the bull thing...
Well, the bulls were NOT those 1000lbs animals from bull fights, they were scrawny little "horned cows" maked for slaughter.
While he did "knock them to thier knees" with a punch or two, he killed them by twisting their necks, as for the horn thing, some say the horns had been "pre-cut", to make it easier.
Who knows ?
Doesn't really change the fact that he was one of the great ones.

Sorry for the dumb question but what is the scoring for kyokushin tournaments. On the video I see knockdowns and perhaps some knock outs. Is it more based on points for hard strikes and kicks or knockouts. At any rate it looks like pretty tough and painfull competition. Thanks.

Everyone goes for the KO, or at least the knock down or to force someone NOT to continue.
Points are awarded for arm strikes to the body, and leg strikes to the head and body.
In SOME competitions, elbows are allowed on the head also ( very rare).
The more aggressive fighter usually wins if there is no Knock out, or no one fails to continue.
