HENKŌ KYOKUSHIN KARATE

DIRECTED BY MARCO KUSTER, 5.DAN KYOKUSHIN KARATE (IKOK SONODA) -

IS  DERIVED FROM KYOKUSHINKAI KARATE AND IS A FULLCONTACT, BAREKNUCKLE STYLE, KAKUTŌ KARATE (JAPANESE 格 闘 空手 COMBAT KARATE).

 

THE MEANING OF THE WORD HENKŌ IS - MODIFIED

THOUGH HENKŌ KYOKUSHIN KARATE IS NOT MODIFYING ANYTHING OF KYOKUSHIN KARATE, NO!

KYOKUSHIN KARATE IS COMPLETE AND CLOSE TO PERFECT IN IT'S OWN.

WHAT WE DO WITH HENKŌ KYOKUSHIN KARATE IS TO BRING THE TWO WORLDS OF THE TRADITIONAL KYOKUSHIN KARATE STYLE AND THE MODERN STYLE OF OTHER FULLCONTACT KARATE STYLES AND JAPANESE KICKBOXING TOGETHER AND TRAIN BOTH STYLES (AND ALL FULLCONTACT RULESETS).

NOT TO COMPLETE ANY OF THEM - WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE THE EXPERTISE TO DO THAT - IT IS MORE OF ADDING THESE WORLDS TOGEHTER -> AND THAT IS THE HENKŌ KYOKUSHIN KARATE PROGRAM - TRADITIONAL KYOKUSHIN KARATE & JAPANESE KICKBOXING .

HENKŌ KYOKUSHIN KARATE IS BASED  ON THE THREE MAIN PILLARS - KIHON / KATA / KUMITE:

 

1) 基本, 移動稽古, KIHON-, IDŌ - GEIKO = THE BASIC TECHNIQUES & CONCEPTS BOTH STATIC & IN

MOTION (KICKING, PUNCHING, BLOCKING, ELLBOW STRIKES & KNEE STRIKES)

 

2) , KATA = THROUGH THE PRACTICE OF KATA, THE KARATE TECHNIQUES USED FOR FIGHTING ARE LEARNED. BALANCE, COORDINATION, BREATHING AND CONCENTRATION ARE ALSO DEVELOPED. 

KATA IS A VERY EFFECTIVE FORM OF MIND AND BODY CONDITIONING AND CONNECTION.

 

3) 組手, KUMITE = "GRAPPLING HANDS" IS THE PART OF KARATE IN WHICH A PERSON TRAINS AGAINST AN TRAINING PARTNER USING THE VARIOUS TECHNIQUES PRACTICED IN KIHON.

IN KUMITE THE STUDENTS ARE LEARNING AND DEVELOPPING STRATEGIES TO APPLY THESE TECHNIQUES IN DIFFERENT FORMS OF KUMITE.

SPARRING AND COMPETITION FIGHTING ARE IMPORTANT PARTS OF KUMITE TO DEVELOP AND MASTER THE KYOKUSHIN KARATE FIGHTING SKILLS AND THEREFORE HENKO KYOKUSHIN KARATE PUTS EXTRA EMPHASIZE ON KUMITE.

PARTS OF KUMITE ARE AS WELL: 

> 約束組手, YAKUSOKU KUMITE = PARTNER FIGHT COMBINATION DRILLS

STRIKE-, BLOCK-, KICK-COMBINATIONS OF KYOKUSHIN KARATE & MUAY THAI/KICKBOXING

> 実戦組手, JISSEN-KUMITE = SPARRING - FULLCONTACT SPARRING IN KYOKUSHIN FULLCONTACT,  BAREKNUCKLE KARATE RULES WITHOUT PROTECTORS

> 競争 KYŌSŌ = COMPETITION, FIGHTS IN A RULESET SIMILAR TO THE SEIDOKAIKAN RULESET,

WITH BAREKNUCKLE, FULLCONTACT KARATE ROUNDS & K-1 KICKBOXING / MUAY THAI / JAPANESE KICKBOXING ROUNDS.
