Kyokushin Karate was founded by Mas Oyama. Oyama traveled from his native Korea to China and finally to his adopted country of Japan, Studying Martial Arts.

What is Kyokushin karate? To some, it is a way to develop and maintain physical strength and learn effective self-defense techniques. To others, it is much more than that. Kyokushin karate is a way of life that transcends the physical aspects of training. The philosophy of Budo is evident in the name that Mas Oyama chose for his karate style, Kyokushin which means “Ultimate Truth”.

this unique event will bring in around 200 participants from around the country. Instructors will also be flown in from around the world such as Japan and Jamaica.
