    Want to Start kyokushin karate

    I'll be going to university in glasgow soon and I want to drop my taekwondo in favour of something more practical and kyokushin karate appeals to my inner masochist. Can anyone here comment on the style and direct me to a club in glasgow?

    Check out kyokushin4life.com, I would make sure that the classes offer what you are looking for before you sign up. Despite kyokushin's reputation it is possible to find a kata/kihon centric school, when in fact you may be looking for a sparring/conditioning centric school

    Hopefully your kyokushin school has a training dedicated to sparring each week, and you could always check with the trainers.
    ( Probably not for beginners though )
