A brief history of our style
Shinkyokushinkai Karate traces its original roots to Kyokushin Karate and its founder Sosai Mas Oyama to our current Kaicho Kenji Midori Shihan (who was the last World Champion prior to splitting of Kyokushin in to its many different factions we have today after Sosai Oyama’s death).
The Shin prefix means new, the translation simply means “New Kyokushin” and while we have kept true to the Kyokushin values and training format of keeping the Budo system and the knockdown format in place we are constantly striving to improve the quality of our training both locally and Internationally.
The fact that we are a Not For Profit International Organisation with over 76 member countries attests to the popularity and success Shinkyokushinkai has attained around the Globe.
The Kokura (below right) represents the relationship and melding of the Mind, Skill and Body through diligent training and exploration of ourselves in the search for personal development leading to a deeper understanding of ourselves and others.
