About Kyokushin Karate in Sydney – Our Philosophy
Kyokushin, also known as the strongest karate, means ‘ultimate truth’ in Japanese. This practice focuses on realistic fighting techniques, including attack and defence methods presented in authentic situations.
The core philosophy of Kanzen Karate is Courage, Respect and Honesty, developing these fundamental values through conscientious training. Kyokushin is the true fighting style of Mas Oyama. Our practice develops physical and mental strength through continuous improvement (kaizen) – 改 善.
As a Power Karate Dojo, we exemplify a set of core values that guide practitioners in their journey:
Integrity – honesty, sincerity, and moral uprightness.
Respect – dignity and diversity in a supportive environment.
Discipline – self-control and considered choices.
Perseverance – resilient spirit and positive affirmation.
Humility – modesty, an absence of arrogance.
