The organization is non-profit...not the guy running it. They have to work five hours a day, supposedly this goes to pay for their training. Nothing in life is free so what is the Owner getting out of it? Most hospitals are NON-PROFIT....they still make a killing, look at the CEO, you think he works for free?

The website says that if you dont work your 5 hrs a day one day then you have to make it up. They are saying that you MUST work 20 hrs a week, even if you miss training to do it. It says it clearly on the website.
How many people are accepted after they send in $20 Money orders and how many rejected? If 10 people a week send money in that can add up, especially if they dont run but a few guys at a time. They are there for three years, the dorm can only hold so many.
I am not sure if this is a cult or scam, or what...thats why I posted it.
If it sound to good to be true then it probably is.If someone has done it and sayst that it is great then hey Im all for it.
Still, read the ENTIRE site, and it sounds fishy.
You are sending a money order

First of all Asshat, it didnt come up on the search function. If you have seen it come up before then why bother posting?

So thanks for trolling, and go **** yourself NOOB.
You really have to read the whole site, there are parts that sound kind of fishy. What do I know though.

There was definitely a thread on this a while ago. I remember someone saying they knew or read about someone who went there and they made you work constantly and barely fed you. Maybe he was just a ***** though.
I never said it was a McDojo, or a Cult. I asked if anyone knew anything about it.
1. Do you get your $20 bucks back if not accepted?
2. Does the money they earn from mandantory work days pay entirely for training or is the owner getting most of it?
3. How well are they taken care of?
4. How good is the training?
It sounds great on the surface, but I was really looking for someone who either had been there and trained, or knew someone (personally) who had done it.
Harvard doesn't give you **** back if you don't measure up to their applications process.

So be clear and concise in your questions
Your thread title questions whether or not they are Bullshido, yet there's no evidence that they are involved in any manner of BS.

He trains hard and often, and has gone to Japan for a Kyokushin tournament as a green belt already. Some of the earlier students also competed in toughman and kickboxing matches as well as Kyokushin tournaments.
What he's doing is basically the uchi-deshi approach. Mas Oyama started having students come live with him for three years. During that time, they would train almost daily, do some odd jobs around the place, teach beginner classes, and similar things. The ultimate goal is to make someone a Kyokushin Karate instructor once they finish the uchi-deshi program.
This is basically what he's trying to do. I think the longest guy to last so far was almost a year. Nobody has graduated through it yet to my knowledge.
