Kyokushin (pronounced “key-yoke/shin”), is reputed throughout the Martial Arts World as the strongest karate. It was founded in 1953 by the late Grand Master Sosai Mas Oyama. After studying various martial arts for two decades, he created Kyokushin Karate from what he believed to be the best qualities from each style, and combined his own practical training methods so the application of these ancient forms could suit 21st Century students.

KYOKU means “The ultimate”, SHIN means “truth” or “reality”.

The KANKU, which is the symbol of Kyokushin Karate originates from the Kanku Kata. In this kata, the hands are raised into the sky with the thumbs and the index fingers touching, thereby forming the symbol. The fingers are represented by the points and imply ultimate or peaks. The wrists are represented by the wide sections and imply power. The centre represents infinity, implying depth. The circle enclosing the Kanku represents continuity and circular motion.
