    Looking for Kyokushin Karate Club

    Hey folks, since you were all so helpful in giving me advice on what to look for in a BJJ club I figured I'd enlist your help again.

    I'm looking for a Kyokushin Karate school to train at...just not enough sparring at my current karate club and it's all non-contact stuff so I'm really not learning any useful self defense there. (Good people, good teacher but the focus is on competition not self-defense so it's not the place for me)

    If anyone knows of any good schools in the Guelph/Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge area (Ontario, Canada) I'd be grateful if you could point me in the right direction.

    P.S. I ended up joining a Judo club instead of BJJ......couldn't find a BJJ place that fit my schedule.

    I just might help you with that.

    Here are links directly from a Kyokushin school in Toronto.I can't say anything about the instructors because I haven't met any of them.However they always travel to Montreal to compete.

    There's a Kyokushin Dojo in Kitchener, but their website seems to be down at the moment.

    maybe look for enshin guys too (sabaki challenge), it was formed by a kyokushin guy and they fight very similiarly, full contact except to the head, and allow takedowns.

    Thanks for all the help guys, much appreciated.

    Can't find the dojo on the link you gave me kyokushincanuck but I did find these links. Found a couple of different web sites for the same club though

    http://kitchener-karate.tripod.com/kkk/kkk0.htm
    http://www.angelfire.com/ky/kitkarate/

    Does anyone have any experience with this club or any of the members?

    I know the best way to find out what the club is like is to go there myself but it never hurts to hear about other people's experiences.

    I'm thinking about joining a Kyokushin club mself. There appear to be some reputable ones in the Vancouver area.

    Well, I found a few people to contact. Looks like a very small community in this area.

    Talked to one teacher today....said they do light and sometimes semi-contact sparring but he said "I don't really want to talk about sparring over the phone".

    Not sure what that means but it doesn't sound like the Kyokushin Karate I've seen and heard about. I wasn't too upset when I was told classes are at the same time as my Judo classes.

    ...will have to try the other school tomorrow and see what they say.

    It's probably for the better. If you're new to martial arts it's usually recommended to concentrate on one thing first to develop a good base, be it striking or grappling. How often do you train in judo a week?
