    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What should I look for in a Kyokushin dojo?

    I recently found out that the place I train is a McDojo, and, luckily, I got out clean. So, I'm out looking for a new martial art, and Kyokushin Karate caught my eye. Having learned my lesson about McDojos, I know what to look out for to distinguish between a McDojo and a dojo.

    My question for you guys, though, is this: what do I look for in a Kyokushin school?

    I know that in Taekwondo, there are two major organizations: the ITF and the WTF. What are the Kyokushin equivalents in the U.S.?

    What are the belt levels in Kyokushin?

    How did you find your Kyokushin school? I've been looking on the internet for a Kyokushin school around where I live, no luck so far.

    Not that there'd be anything wrong with asking folks on Bullshido, but did you try googling kyokushinkai? Did you make a search here, including the school review section?

    Nevermind, it's just a -ung -u guy asking... ;-) And welcome to the site!

    Traditional (Harsh) training. Conditioning, sparring, some kata and kihon but it should be 60/40 in the first 2 things at the very least.

    I know that in Taekwondo, there are two major organizations: the ITF and the WTF. What are the Kyokushin equivalents in the U.S.?
    Kyokushin has several organizations, IKO 1,2,3 etc and offshoots, ashihara, shidokan, enshin, IBK

    What are the belt levels in Kyokushin?
    Standard karate Kyu system 10th kyu to Shodan

    How did you find your Kyokushin school? I've been looking on the internet for a Kyokushin school around where I live, no luck so far.
    Google kyokushin + your location, if nothing shows up you should look for muay thai, sanda, or boxing if you're dead set on striking or even Judo or BJJ for something new.

    I've already googled it + my location with no luck. I'm focused on getting a Kyokushin dojo, I'm not looking for anything else.

    Well you can look for an offshot like ashihara or enshin if you don't find Kyokushin. Or you can ask in Kyokushin4life those guys are really good finding kyokushin dojos. You should give a try to Muay Thai and Kickboxing those are very good styles too.
