    New Student: when will you quit?

    Hmm, to me it sounds like you have been looking for fighting in a point-based karate style, so comparing shotokan with KK, Muay Thair, etc makes it super clear that you wanted the latter. Also, you might have been to "bad" dojos, that didn't help you understand that. I any case, I am glad you...

    Tell me about your first day of training..

    Thank you for the kind words. I am doing my best to embrace it and turn it into motivation! I want to become better, simple as that. Also, not for any special reason, I will just quickly go through the grading to have it written down, just for the sake of it. Were probably around 20 people, 3...

    Kyokushin Conditioning Tips

    Yeah I figured, actually just came back from the gym, did some running intervalls. As you mentioned, I am not looking for being that slow pace long runner, it is boring as heck as well. Couldn't motivate myself to go there and run for an hour, I rather do intervalls for 30 minutes and then I'm...

    Kyokushin Conditioning Tips

    Wow, thank you guys for all the information! It was even more tips than I thought, I was never even thinking of intervalls and heavy bag doing rounds. I will pick these tips up and look into what I can find. I hope there is a bag at my gym, otherwise I will have to do something else. Osu!

    Tell me about your first day of training..

    Of course, I expect to settle but if I can remember this feeling, I can easier motivate myself to continue when I reach plateus in my journey. Thank you for your words! I want to see a black belt grading too, sadly there is no possibility of that in my city. If anyone from my dojo is to grade...

    Kyokushin Conditioning Tips

    Hi, I practice Kyokushin Karate, I have just reached my first grade (10th kyu) and I realised that soon, within 6 months or so, the real though fighting begins at my dojo. I must become better to join them, but when I do, I want to be ready. Not only physically and mentally, but conditioning...

    Tell me about your first day of training..

    Today I had the graduation and I can proudly say that I am now 10th kyu! I am now allowed to start training with the other groups in the dojo, not just the beginners one. This means more opportunities to attend each week and each time will be even thougher. I can't wait, going there on monday...

    Tell me about your first day of training..

    Osu, I am convinced of what you say and it's truth. I hope to be able to persist, I am very intrigued by the personal growth that seems to be connected with Karate. I am barely seeing the physical as a bi-product, the main result I want to see is my personal growth. I have convinced myself that...

I am training in Sweden, so we are far from eachother, but if your profile is correct you have graded 10th kyu? My congratulations, my grading is yet to come! If you want to have a chat...

    Water is your friend.

    I train kyokushin, and in our Dojo, you are not allowed to drink during the training. As someone said, it is only a superficial feeling of comfort to drink during high intense workouts since the water doesn't have time to be absorbed by the body anyway. So we always make sure to drink plenty...

    Tell me about your first day of training..

    My first day of training Kyokushin karate was was last week, I entered late in the term due to just moving to a new city, but the Sensei said that I may join the beginners group anyway due to the fact that i had tried Shitoryu karate once or twice a few years ago, and he told me that with some...
