Kyokushin Karate “The Strongest Karate” was founded by Sosai Masutatsu Oyama. Sosai Oyama studied various martial arts with masters like Gichin Funakoshi of Okinawan fame (Shotokan karate) and So Nei Chu of Goju karate. Taking what he felt were the best techniques and concepts from other karate styles, he created Kyokushin karate.

Bo Kata Chion



Means sound knowledge. Sound knowledge of each movement and technique is the first step towards performing a kata properly. Seeking out sound knowledge is the foundation to achieving any goal you have set for yourself. Derived from the characters Yan, meaning safe, and Su, meaning three. The name is attributed to that of a Chinese military attaché to Okinawa in the 19th Century. The word yansu also means to keep pure, striving to maintain the purity of principles and ideals rather than compromising for vainly objectives.



Literally translated as "grand ultimate", and in Chinese, the kanji characters are pronounced Tai Chi. The word Taikyoku can also mean overview or the whole point – seeing the whole rather than focusing on the individual parts, and keeping an open mind or beginner's mind. The beginner's mind is what is strived for during training and in life. The beginner's mind does not hold prejudice and does not cling to a narrow view. The beginner's mind is open to endless possibilities. That's why a practitioner should never think that as soon as it ascends in the latter or more complex katas the first and most basic ones loose importance, therefore, keep an open mind.

The embusen (pathway) of all the Taikyoku kata is simple (here, the # represents the starting and ending point):


Tensho means rolling or fluid hand, literally translated as "rotating palms". Tensho is the soft and circular (yin) counterpart to the hard and linear (yang) Sanchin kata. Not only was Tensho one of Mas Oyama's favorite kata, he considered it to be the most indispensable of the advanced kata:

Tensho is a basic illustration of the definition of Karate, derived from Chinese kempo, as a technique of circles based on points. Tensho should be a prime object of practice because, as a psychological and theoretical support behind karate training and as a central element in basic karate formal exercises, it has permeated the techniques, the blocks and the thrusts, and is intimately connected with the very life of karate. A man who has practiced Tensho kata a number of thousands of times and has a firm grasp of its theory can not only take any attack, but can also turn the advantage in any attack, and will always be able to defend himself perfectly.

Tsuki No Kata

Means fortune and luck. Good fortune does not come simply by waiting. Each time we punch, in this kata we should imagine that we are breaking down some barrier. Strong, persistent effort directed at our problems will bring us good fortune.
