Nieuwbericht uit Japan van Shihan Tabata: 

I would like to share with you a message from Sosai Masutatsu Oyama: “There are Dojos of Kyokushin Karate all over the world. Dojo students practice every day. When they are sweating, there are no barriers between nationalities or genders. We are connected by the same Kyokushin spirit.”
This is because Kyokushin Karate is Budo Karate.
The spirit of Budo is to improve one’s character and respect others at the same time as developing one’s Karate ability.
