Kyo Ku Shin Way This is True Karate
This presentation is simply amazing you will see knock outs like you have never seen before. NO PADDING.
The waterfall training, the ice water training, tree punching and with a doubt some of the most amazing breaking techniques ever captured on film. Fire breaks, Ice breaks, concrete and baseball bat breaks its all here in the Kyo Ku Shin Way. You will see one karate ka pearce a side of beef with his finger tips another splits a watermellon with his finger tips while baseball bats are kicked thru like tooth picks.
The kata of Kyu Ku Shin Kai, the basic techniques and just too much to menton.
Low kicks from hell, devastating axe kicks, round house kicks that hit full blast, no padding. Just to stay in the ring is most certainly the fighting spirit of old Japan come alive.
An absolute must for anyone interested in "FULL CONTACT MARTIAL ARTS".
Kyokushin was the first full contact martial art to come out of Japan it is the roots of the K-1. --FightingSpiritMagazine.Com

The subject, kyokushin kai karate -the first full contact karate style, is interesting (and I am personaly a fanatic about it) but this dvd is a disgrace.
It is 58 minutes in lenght.
Someone has gone trough their old video collection and dug up all their old 3rd generation vhs to vhs copies and captured them on their computer (with a bad video capturing program that "skipps" when the video signal gets to bad -which is frequently). Mixed the scenes about a bit, added a title screen in some video editing program and decided it was finished!
Im not kidding, it is old vhs copies (old, faded signal, with tension distortions at the edges and everything else that goes with very old and used vhs tapes) from the 70ies and 80ies. Ive seen most of them before, and I kind of doubt they have gotten the rights to use the material. Most are still commersialy available as vhs (in good quality), in japan.
There are no subtext to the japanese sound and text shown, but that is ok since the scenes are so mixed up that the sound (which are from the originals) makes no sense anyway.
Most of it are barely viewable short clips from old world open tournaments. All mixed together.
As a kyokushin karate practicioner, as a fan of martial arts in general and karate in particular, I have to warn people about this one. The quality is abysmal and so far from profesional it is almost funny. At times there are more frozen pictures and blank screens due to the horrible capture, than it is actual moving movie.
I cannot belive that someone actualy released this!
The subject may be interesting, but this DVD is junk and border line scam!
Do! Not! Buy!
