Kyokushin Karate was named by an aphorism “A thousand days to be a beginner, and ten thousand days to be a master”.
Masutatsu Oyama, who was the strongest martial artist in the world, created Kyokushin Karate.
He had learned Kenpo since his childhood, and he took first prize in the Japan Karate Championship for the first time after the Second World War in 1947.
After that, he made many anecdotes, which he did a long-time training in the mountain, did a match with a bullfight, did a lot of ascetic trainings in the world and so on.
Also, he had twelve million disciples in 120 countries worldwide, and he dedicated his life to Kyoushin Karate.
