Kyokushin Kata

Kyokushin Kata

The word kata means "shape" or "form".  The kanji for kata the Japanese character above at the right) is composed of the following characters:

Katachi  Katachi  meaning "Shape",

Kai  Kai  meaning "Cut", and

Tsuchi  Tsuchi  meaning "Earth" or "Soil".

Literally translated, kata means "shape which cuts the ground". 

A kata is a sequence of blocks, kicks and punches from one or more stances, involving movement forward, backward and to the sides.  The number of movements and their sequence are very specific.  The balance between offensive and defensive techniques, the stances used and the direction and flow of movement all serve to give each kata its distinctive character.

Through the practice of kata, the traditional techniques used for fighting are learned.  Balance, coordination, breathing and concentration are also developed.  Done properly, kata are an excellent physical exercise and a very effective form of total mind and body conditioning.  Kata embodies the idea of ren ma, or "always polishing" – with diligent practice, the moves of the kata become further refined and perfected.  The attention to detail that is necessary to perfect a kata cultivates self discipline.

Through concentration, dedication and practice, a higher level of learning may be achieved, where the kata is so ingrained in the subconscious mind that no conscious attention is needed.  This is what the Zen masters call mushin, or "no mind." The conscious, rational thought practice is not used at all – what was once memorized is now spontaneous.

The practice of traditional kata is also a way for the karateka to pay respect to the origins and history of Kyokushin Karate and the martial arts in general.


Kyokushin kata are often categorized as "Northern Kata" or "Southern Kata," based upon their origin and development.

The Northern Kata are similar to those found in Shotokan Karate, since they were developed from Mas Oyama's training under Gichin Funakoshi.  Master Funakoshi in turn derived these kata from northern Chinese kempo and Shorin Ryu, the Okinawan karate style based on Chinese Shaolin (i.e. "Shorin") kempo.  These kata utilize long, powerful stances and strong blocks and strikes.  The Northern Kata include:

  • Taikyoku Sono Ichi, Ni and San

  • Pinan Sono Ichi, Ni, San, Yon and Go

  • Yansu

  • Tsuki no Kata

  • Kanku

  • Sushiho

The Southern Kata were developed from Mas Oyama's study of the Okinawan karate style of Goju Ryu under So Nei Chu, which in turn were derived from southern Chinese kempo.  The movements in these kata are more circular and flamboyant than those in the Northern Kata.  The Southern Kata include:

  • Sanchin no Kata

  • Gekisai Dai and Sho

  • Tensho

  • Saiha

  • Seienchin

  • Gayru

  • Seipai


Tai-kyokuTaikyoku is literally translated as "grand ultimate", and in Chinese, the kanji characters are pronounced Tai Chi.  The word Taikyoku can also mean overview or the whole point – seeing the whole rather than focusing on the individual parts, and keeping an open mind or beginner's mind.  The beginner's mind is what is strived for during training and in life.  The beginner's mind does not hold prejudice and does not cling to a narrow view.  The beginner's mind is open to endless possibilities.

Pin-yanPinan is the Okinawan pronunciation of the kanji characters for peace and relaxation (pronounced Heian in Japanese).  Though the physical moves of kata involve techniques used for fighting, the purpose of kata is to develop a calm, peaceful mind and harmony between the mind and body.

San-chinSanchin literally means "three battles" or "three conflicts".  It is the principal kata in certain Okinawan karate styles, such as Goju Ryu and Uechi Ryu, and it is likely one of the oldest kata.  Certain legends attribute the creation of Sanchin to Bodhidharma in the early sixth century.  Sanchin kata seeks to develop three elements at the same time:
    – The mind, body and the techniques,
    – The internal organs, circulation and the nervous system, and
    – The three ki, located in:
          – the top of the head (tento),
          – the diaphragm (hara), and
          – the lower abdomen (tan den).
Sanchin is an isometric kata where each move is performed in a state of complete tension, accompanied by powerful, deep breathing (ibuki) that originates in the lower abdomen (tan den).  The practice of Sanchin not only leads to the strengthening of the body, but to the development of the inner power (ki) and the coordination of mind and body.

Geki-saiGekisai means conquer and occupy.  The name is derived from the characters Geki, meaning attack or conquer, and Sai, meaning fortress or stronghold (literally translated as "closed", "shut" or "covered").  The word Gekisai can also mean demolish, destroy or pulverize.  The katas teach strength through fluidity of motion, mobility and the utilization of various techniques.  Flexibility of attack and response will always be superior to rigid and inflexible strength.

Yan-suYansu is derived from the characters Yan, meaning safe, and Su, meaning three.  The name is attributed to that of a Chinese military attaché to Okinawa in the 19th Century.  The word yansu also means to keep pure, striving to maintain the purity of principles and ideals rather than compromising for expediency.

Tsu-kiNoTsuki no by its very name is a punching kata (there is only one kick and just a few blocks in the entire kata).  The word Tsuki can also mean fortune and luck.  Good fortune and luck does not come by waiting.  For every punch in this kata, envision that a personal barrier is being broken down.  Strong, persistent effort directed at problems will bring good fortune.

Ten-shoTensho means rolling or fluid hand, literally translated as "rotating palms".  Tensho is the soft and circular (yin) counterpart to the hard and linear (yang) Sanchin kata.  Not only was Tensho one of Mas Oyama's favorite kata, he considered it to be the most indispensable of the advanced kata:

Tensho is a basic illustration of the definition of Karate, derived from Chinese kempo, as a technique of circles based on points.

Tensho should be a prime object of practice because, as a psychological and theoretical support behind karate training and as a central element in basic karate formal exercises, it has permeated the techniques, the blocks and the thrusts, and is intimately connected with the very life of karate.

A man who has practiced Tensho kata a number of thousands of times and has a firm grasp of its theory can not only take any attack, but can also turn the advantage in any attack, and will always be able to defend himself perfectly.

Sai-haSaiha means extreme destruction, smashing or tearing.  The word Saiha can also mean great wave, the source of the IFK logo.  No matter how large a problem is encountered, with patience, determination and perseverance (Osu) one can rise above and overcome it, or smash through and get beyond it.

Kan-kuKanku means sky gazing.  Literally translated, Kan means "view", and Ku means "universe", "air", "emptiness" or "void" (the same character as Kara in karate).  The first move of the kata is the formation of an opening with the hands above the head, through which one gazes at the universe and rising sun.  The significance is that no matter what problems are faced, each day is new and the universe is waiting.  Nothing is so terrible that it affects the basic reality of existence.

Sei-en-chinSeienchin means conqueror and subdue over a distance, or attack the rebellious outpost.  In feudal Japan, Samurai warriors would often go on expeditions lasting many months, and they needed to maintain their strength and spirit over a long period of time.  This kata is long and slow, with many techniques performed from kiba dachi (horseback stance).  The legs usually become very tired in this kata, and a strong spirit is needed to persevere, instead of giving up.  The word Seienchin can also mean to pull in battle.

U-se-shiHoSushiho means 54 steps.  Sushiho is derived from the words Useshi, the Okinawan pronunciation of the kanji characters for 54 (pronounced Go Ju Shi in Japanese), and Ho, meaning walk or step.  Other karate styles call this advanced kata Gojushiho.

Ga-ryuGaryu means reclining dragon.  In Japanese philosophy, a great man who remains in obscurity is called a Garyu.  A dragon is all-powerful, but a reclining dragon chooses not to display his power until it is needed.  Likewise, a true karateka does not brag about or show off his abilities.  He never forgets the true virtue of humility.

Sei-paiSeipai is the Okinawan pronunciation of the kanji characters for 18 (pronounced Ju Hachi in Japanese).  In other karate styles, this kata is sometimes called Seipaite, or eighteen hands.  The number 18 is derived from the Buddhist concept of 6 x 3, where six represents color, voice, taste, smell, touch and justice and three represents good, bad and peace.

kyukoshin Kan

Kyokushinkai Kan

    Masutatsu Oyama, the founder of the largest Karate organization started and established Bare-knuckle, Full-contact tournament system one of the top authoritative and influential figures in the world of Martial Arts history one of the pioneers in spreading the Asian Martial Arts to the West and to all over the world ever pursuing, ever a practitioner, he is recognized to be reached to the level of the true Mastery.

Sosai Masutatsu Oyama (1923 - 1994)

Kyoku = Ultimate, utmost
Shin = Truth, truthfulness
Kai = Organization
Kan = Building, School

Kyokushinkai The kanji (Japanese characters) calligraphy, worn universally on the front of the gi, simply means "Kyokushinkai", which is the name given by Sosai Mas Oyama to the karate style he created.  It is composed of three characters:

Kyoku  Kyoku  meaning "Ultimate".

Shin  Shin  meaning "Truth" or "Reality".

Kai  Kai  meaning "Society" or "Association".


Kanku The symbol of Kyokushin Karate is the Kanku, which is derived from Kanku Kata, the Sky Gazing Form.  In this kata, the hands are raised and the fingers meet to form an opening through which the sky is viewed.  The top and bottom points of the Kanku represent the first fingers of each hand touching at the top and the thumbs touching at the bottom, symbolizing the peaks or ultimate points.  The thick sections at the sides represent the wrists, symbolizing power.  The center circle represents the opening between the hands through which the sky is viewed, symbolizing infinite depth.  The whole Kanku is enclosed by a circle, symbolizing continuity and circular action.

100 Man Kumite

      The hundred-man kumite might well be seen as the ultimate test of physical and mental perseverance in Martial Arts, or for that matter, many other sports today. In essence, the exercise consists of 2-minute rounds of kumite with 100 opponents, preferably a different one for each round.

Kancho Shokei Matsui vs. Andy Hug

Yamoaka Tesshu's Hundred Man Duel

During the mid-nineteenth century (Gregorian, of course) there lived a great sword master in Japan by the name of Yamaoka Tesshu, who was the founder of the Hokushin Itto-Ryo. This man is reputed to have completed a 100 man duel, in which he fought (and defeated) one hundred consecutive opponents with the shinai (the bamboo sword used to practice kendo.

Masahiko Kimura's Two Hundred Man Throwing

Masahiko Kimura, arguably the most famous judoka in the history of the sport, was a close friend of Mas Oyama. Oyama said of him that Kimura was the only person he knew who trained as hard or harder than Oyama did himself! Kimura's record in All-Japan Judo title (12 years, including WW-II when no championships were held) was bettered only by Yasuhiro Yamashita, who held the title for 9 consecutive years. In the Japanese Judo world, there is a saying that goes "Before Kimura, no Kimura. After Kimura, no Kimura.

Though the author (Shihan Cameron Quinn) of my major reference could not confirm it, it is said that that Kimura completed the 100 man throwing against two hundred black belts for two consecutive days, and was not defeated once.

Mas Oyama's Three Hundred Man Kumite

Sosai Masutatsu Oyama It was with these examples in mind that Oyama decided to test his own abilities. And he would go one day better! He chose the strongest students in his dojo, who were to fight him one at a time until they'd all had a turn, and then they'd start from the beginning again, until the three hundred rounds were up. He defeated them all, never wavering in his resolve, despite the fact that he himself suffered severe physical injury in the process.

Each student had to face him about four times over the three days, though some never made it past the first day due to Oyama's powerful blows. Legend even has it that Oyama was willing to go for a FOURTH day, but no one else was willing or able! This took place no long after he had completed his mountain training.

The One hundred man Kumite

Having set the example, Mas Oyama started to institute the 100-man kumite as a requirement for attaining 4th or 5th dan. He soon found however, that not everyone had the spirit to do it, though the physical skill could "easily" be taught. The indomitable will, courage, and determination — the " Spirit of Osu" in it's extreme — just wasn't to be found in everyone. Thus it became a voluntary exercise for those few who had the right stuff.

At first, the fights could be completed over two days if so desired by the person doing it, but after 1967, Mas Oyama decided that they should all be fought on the same day. In addition to the basic requirement of 100 fights, other requirements are that the competitor must clearly win at least 50% of the fights, and if knocked down, should not stay down for longer than 5 seconds.

In Australia, and possibly elsewhere, the 50 man kumite is a lesser (but still no mean achievement) feat that can be attempted. Steve Arneil

In Great Britain, and anywhere else under the aegis of Hanshi Steve Arneil, anyone can choose to do any number of fights e.g. 10, 20, 30 , 40, 50 etc.... and he or she will get a certificate for this achievement. This in recognition that, while not everyone maybe able to meet the ultimate Kyokushin benchmark of 100 fights, personal bench-marks are just as important an attainment. After all, even 10 knockdown fights in swift succession can come to as much as half an hour of solid fighting.

Who's done what?

One Hundred

Apart from Oyama's spectacular 3 days in a row, a number of other people have tried and completed the 100 man kumite — but not many. The list below gives the names of these incredible men, and it is notable that most of them are still very active in karate, having achieved a high rank. Some are even heads of their own styles which, of course, are heavily derivative of Kyokushin.

Initially, people had the choice do it over two days, with 50 fights per day, but later it became compulsory to do it all in one day.

    Steve Arneil (1965)
    Steve Arneil of Great Britain (now 8th Dan) was the very first, and he did them all in one day (pers.comm). He is now the head of the International Federation of Karate (IFK) based in the UK, and which is not affiliated with the Honbu in Japan.
    Tadashi Nakamura (1965)
    Now known as Kaicho Nakamura, he is the founder of World Seido Karate, based in New York
    Soshu Shigeru Oyama Shigeru Oyama (1966)
    No relationship to Sosai, he is now head of his own style, World Oyama Karate based in New York.
    Loek Hollander (1967)
    John Jarvis (1967)
    A New Zealander.
    Howard Collins
    He was the first to do it compulsorily in one day.
    Miyuki Miura (Friday the 13th, April 1972)
    The first Japanese to do it in one day, he now heads the Midwest Headquarters of the World Oyama Karate offshoot.
    Kancho Shokei Matsui Akiyoshi Matsui (1986)
    Akiyoshi Matsui is the (vigourously disputed) successor to Mas Oyama as kancho or head of the International Karate Organisation (IKO) (listed as IKO(1) in the this website - Shah). He was the winner of the 1985 and 1986 Japanese Open Championships, and the 1987 4th World Open Karate Tournament.
    Ademir de Costa (1987)
    This Brazilian was 4th in the 1983 World Championships.
    Keiji Sanpei (March, 1990)
    Akira Masuda (March, 1991)

    Kenji Yamaki Kenji Yamaki (March, 1995)
    He was the winner of the 1995 World Championships. He did his 100 at the same time as Francisco Filho below. His results were:
    	ippon gachi				22
    	waza ari/yusei gachi (combined)		61
    	hiki wake				12
    	make					 5

    Francisco Filho (Feb and March,1995)
    Francisco Filho Thanks to Jake Calvo's Japanese magazine and neighbour (who translated for him) we know that this incredible Brazilian did it twice, within the short period of two months. The first time it was in Brazil, and the second time in Japan, on the same day as Kenji Yamaki. He then went on, in the same year, to also place 3rd in the November 1995 World Championships.

    Jake also kindly provided the results of Filho's two sessions. The Brazilian bouts were 1 minute and 30 seconds each. and the event took 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete. The Japanese bouts were probably the regulation 2 minutes each, with no total time provided.

    				      Brazil	      Japan
    	ippon gachi (full point)	41		26
    	waza ari (half point)		18		38
    	yusei gachi (decision)		 9		12
    	hiki wake (draw)		32		24
    	make (losses)			 0		 0

    It has been confirmed, by Sensei Ademir da Costa via Helder Sampaio from Brazil, that Francisco Filho practiced 50 man kumite EVERY Friday! While it was not full-contact sparring, (probably similar to what I know as jiyu kumite), and Sensei Filho pulled his punches, the 50 opponents however were not required to do so. It should however be noted that this was STANDARD training for any of the 1995 World Championship fighters in the dojo. It was not just Francisco who did it.

    All I can say is "OSU!"

    Sensei Hajime Kazumi Hajime Kazumi (Sat, 13th March,1999)
    Hajime Kazumi completed his 100 man kumite at the new IKO(1) Honbu. Results were obtained from the official IKO(1) site and are as follows:
    Time per Kumite 1 minute 30 seconds
    Time Started 11:38
    Time Finished 15:42
    Total Fighting Time 3 hours 20 minutes 40 seconds
    Total Spending Time 4 hours 4 minutes
    Results 58 wins, 42 draws, no losses
    Ippons: 16 (Ippon: 2, Awase-Ippon: 14)
    Wins by decision: 42 (Waza-ari: 15)


The following have completed the 50 man kumite:
    Gary Bufton, Great Britain (March,1976)
    This was done under the then Sensei Howard Collins. In 1978 he also did the forty-man knockdown kumite under Steve Arneil.
    Bernard Creaton, Great Britain (1977)
    David Cook, Great Britain (1977)
    Jeff Whybrow, Great Britain (1978)
    Cyril Andrews, Great Britain (1978)
    Jim Phillips, Australia (Feb, 1986)
    Luke Grgurevic, Australia (Feb, 1986)
    Tony Bowden, Australia (Feb, 1986)
    Gary Viccars, Australia (Feb, 1986)
    Tom Levar, Australia (Mar, 1990)
    When I as a 4th kyu, I fought him in the semi-finals of the Open Division of the 1993 NSW Challenge Trophy Tournament. He was a nidan and defending champion. I lost. I ended up with huge bruises on my chest and around my calves, and with a split eyelid from his knee, and something loose inside my eye (that's better now!). But I was awarded an extra round of applause for fighting spirit (but no trophy)!
    Sapan K. Chakraborty, India ( Sep. 92 and Dec. 94)
    He first did it in India, and the second time in front of Steve Arneil in England.
    Michael Thompson, Great Britain (1992)
    Trevor Marriot, Great Britain (1993)
    Peter Angerer, Germany (20th Sep. 1997)
    Sensei Angerer, of Shidokan Germany, completed the 50-man kumite unbeaten, with 42 wins, 8 wins by KO, 0 losses and 8 draws. Two others, Heiko Elholm and Tobias Wallisch, both also from Shidokan, completed the 30-man at the same time. All three underwent the test in preparation for the 7th US Shidokan Open in November of the same year. The ordeal was officially witnessed by :
    • Dai Shihan Joachim Dieter Eisheuer, 7th Dan Kyokushin Budo Kai, 5th Dan Kyokushinkai
    • Shihan B. Mirza Bangsajayah, 4th Dan Enshin and Branch Chief of Enshin in Germany
    • Sensei Changdana Mutunayake, 3th Dan Enshin, 5th Dan Shotokan
    • Sensei Elena Ziegler, 3th Dan Jiu Jitsu
    Raoul Strikker, Belgium (13th Dec. 1997)
    Here's a paraphrase of what Koen de Backker, one of his opponents, had to say about it :
      Today Sempai Raoul Strikker (Shodan) did his 50 man kumite. His coach was Sensei Marc Van Walleghem. He fought 50 rounds of 2 minutes each without any breaks on knockdown rules. There were 41 fighters of whom more then 50% were black and brown belts, among them one sandan and two nidan, and they included the likes of Richard von Mantfeld (Holland), Koen Spitaels, and Gabriel Lothar, all of them world class fighters. It was hard, a real test of stamina, but he did it, although the last 5 rounds seemed to be impossible to overcome. Yet he did it! I had the 35th round, but at that moment his blows and kicks were still hurting very hard. Congratulations Raoul!
    Sjaak van de Velde, The Netherlands (24th Oct. 1998)
    Sensei Sjaak van de Velde (founder of the Musashi offshoot) chose to do the 50 man kumite as the fighting component of his Sandan grading. Shihan Jock Middelman (6th dan) and Sensei Marius Goedegebuur (3rd dan) watched as he completed it admirably with 41 wins and 9 draws! The following is a quote from correspondence with him:
      I had to fight for my second kyu 25 man kumite, Shodan 30 man kumite, Nidan 40 man kumite, Sandan 50 man kumite. Always on knock down rules. I think it is coming from Shihan Bluming who introduced Kyokushin in the Netherlands. He was (still is) always a very tough and very hard fighter and a lover of real combat.. On the end you MUST stand in fighting position. If you are not you failed....   ...I am at the age of 41 and I have been always a good fighter, therefore it was my choose to do the 50 kumite because its probably the last time in my life that I can do this (I think). I have no regret of it, it was one of the things you do once in a lifetime.
    Jim Sklavos, Australia (12th Jun. 1999)
    I must be getting old. I remember seeing a relatively young Jim Sklavos getting his Shodan while I was grading for 2nd or 3rd kyu! Now he'd no doubt beat me to a pulp, were I to give him a reason. Here's what he had to say :
      Last Saturday I completed the 50 men kumite at our National Camp on the Gold Coast. Shihan John Taylor and Shihan Gary Viccars judged the fights. People that I fought included Tony Bowden, Mark Tyson, John Hallford, Michael Maizey and others."

Some thoughts about the One Hundred Man Kumite

Francisco Filho vs. Hajime Kazumi
It is worth making some comparisons in order to put the 100 man kumite in perspective. Most of the readers here might already have an inkling, but some figures will help in appreciating Mas Oyama's unparalleled 300 fights.

A World Championship tournament might consist of 7 or 8 rounds of tough kumite, and with allowances for 4 extensions and no byes, this would come to just over half an hour of fighting. There would however be lengthy rest breaks between rounds, with time to tend to injuries. Consider a boxer going 100 rounds non-stop with no breaks and with a new opponent each round, and with the requirement of winning at least 50 of these rounds.

Imagine up to 4 hours of non-stop full-contact kumite, bearing in mind that in Kyokushin tournaments we are only allowed mouth and groin guards! To be fair, if the candidate is good and knocks his opponent down fast enough, the round can be over in less than full time. It seems unlikely that anyone will ever again achieve the same as Mas Oyama did with his 300 rounds!
