Karate Kyokushinkai


To understand this we must first revise our concept of Karate. Karate is seen in a very superficial society today. Is directly associated with destruction, violence, etc.. The films have contributed to the popularization of Karate in the wrong way. There are also many people who think that Karate is only one type of calisthenics or perhaps a kind of contemporary dance. This shows an overwhelming degree deplorable conception of this lifestyle and the true meaning of Karate.

Karate is a martial art, is a philosophy of life, share the same grounds as Judo, Kendo, Aikido, the tea ceremony, calligraphy and flower arrangement in Japanese, which is to allow human beings to develop their maximum potential, both physical and spiritual. It is also within reason to claim that Karate (originally as a martial art), through rigorous training (physical, spiritual and discipline), makes the impossible possible, also helps the individual to persuade with the goals of your life. A very strict physical training course also involves a demanding psychological training. Karate is a method to unify body and spirit so that human life has a deeper and broader meaning.
"Karate" is a combination of two Japanese words
, "Kara" meaning empty or open"Te "meaning hand and therefore was used to describe a style of unarmed combat.

It is generally accepted that the origins of karate originated in ancient India. About 520 UN. D., a Buddhist priest named Daruma Taishi, also known under the name of Bohdidharma, who was the third son of a king and a brilliant student of Zen Bohdidharma study the method of fighting animals, insects and the laws of nature This combined with a special breathing technique designed to strengthen the body and mind with this Bohdidharma believe the foundation of a legendary combat system using empty hands and mental concentration. Bohdidharma is said to believe in China, Shao-Lin Temple in Honan province, where he instructed other monks in his particular style of combat.

The system developed in the temple gradually disseminated throughout Asia, spread to Okinawa, Korea and Mongolia. UN Around 1130. D., several aspects of this system had been incorporated into the indigenous military disciplines of Japan, who were geographically and culturally isolated.

Historically, Asian combat systems were taught and refined in secrecy because their practices were prohibited in different regions. Consequently, many styles practiced in different regions, different families and schools evolved, one of these is the Kempo style of Okinawa.

By 1901, Kempo was being taught openly in Okinawa, and in 1916, it was shown in Japan by Master Gichin Funakoshi. There, under the name of Karate, the practical applications of the system is refined and were united with the Zen philosophy of the disciplines practiced in Japan. The popularity of karate as a martial art and sport quickly became popular, both inside and outside Japan, contributing to the development of various systems and schools.

Kyokushin Karate is a discipline through which students can find clues to help them in their own spiritual exploration and personal development. It is also a martial art, encompassing philosophical considerations of life and death, struggle and survival. It is a practical self-defense, emphasizing (in the initial stages) kicks, blows with hands, blocks and body movements. It is an intense physical activity, which directly benefits our mental state.
