intent and power

Learn from the best instructors at seminars and periodic summer camps in mountain, forest, and ocean locations, both in the U.S. and around the world. Meet other students and make new friends! 


test yourself

We hold regular kyu grading and belt testing that helps build strength, courage, and character. We also hold regular blackbelt grading. Grading includes a power test (physical conditioning), kihon (basics), kata (forms), weapons, self defense (including throws), and kumite (practical fighting). 


seminars and camps

Kyokushin emphasizes practical self defense against one or more combatants, with or without weapons, standing up or on the ground. Students are taught how to effectively defend themselves, develop situational awareness, generate knockdown power, and build a responsible code of conduct.
