Street fighter challenges Kyokushin black belt – This is NOT how you’re supposed to use martial arts
Generally speaking, training in the martial arts can supply you with a great many benefits. These include, but are not limited to, self-confidence, self-awareness, focus, coordination, and self-control and responsibilty.
Unfortunately, just because a person trains in the martial arts does not mean they will use all the benefits in the right way. For instance, when a person who is smaller than you and does not train in martial arts challenges you, you’re supposed to walk away, not unleash all the hours/years of training onto them.
In the following video, we see a self-proclaimed street fighter vs. a trained Kyokushinkai. I’m pretty sure we all know how the video ends, but it is definitely worth a watch to show us how NOT to use martial arts.
What is Kyokushin?
Kyokushin is a martial arts style of stand-up fighting and was founded in 1964 by Korean-Japanese Masutatsu Oyama. “Kyokushin” is Japanese for “the ultimate truth”. It is rooted in a philosophy of self-improvement, discipline, and hard training.
Kyokushin training consists of three main elements: technique, forms, and sparring. These are sometimes referred to as the three “K’s” after the Japanese words for them: kihon (basics), kata (Imaginary forms of Fight), and kumite (sparring).
If you ever get a chance to spar with a legitimate Kyokushinkai, watch out for those spinning kicks! [Wiki]
