    Chicagoland Kyokushin

    This is all to you Kyokushinkai Karateka. Try to help me out with this.

    I've always found Kyokushinkai an interesting style. Everything about it fasinates me. I always thought any Kyokushinkai dojo's were too far. (all the way in the city of Chicago, while I am in the far burbs)

    Then I saw this:

    http://www.southwestacademyofkarate.com/

    I have never heard of them, and was wondering if they were any good. There instructor is an 8th dan, and the head sensei is obviously an american, so I just wanted to check. Anybody know them? The quality of instruction? Competition? ect

    Also I ask cause the price is a bit high and wasnted to know if it was worth it. (and before you say anything, I have talked to the main sensei, but was wondering if anybody has had experience with them)

    Well, the rank of the instructor is really suspiscious you'll not see many 8th dan in Kyokushin, most of the instructors with those ranks have received an honorary promotion, like Steve Arneil or Don Buck.

    Maybe you should take a look at some class, because some Kyokushin dojos are more kata/kihon oriented, in a good Kyokushin dojo class structure its something like this: some workout, pad work, bag work, conditioning, technique drills and kumite.

    Sorry for my english.

    Why don't you take a class there and see for yourself? You could then do a review of that dojo.

    Theyre closed until January 2nd.

    Plus I heard that they may be kata oriented.

    I am afraid I can't offer you any better advice than has already been given. Go check out the school for yourself! I will say if That school was close to where I live I would definately check it out.

    Personally, if a Kyokushin dojo opened within fifty miles of me, I would ignore a front-page Bullshido article proclaiming it the worst Kyokushin school ever to go check it out. Part of that is because I want to be h4rdc0re (without filming porn) and study Kyokushin, but also because there's no substitute for checking a place out yourself.
