What is Rikishakai


The world begins with power and ends with gratitude.
Without power, you cannot live.
Without gratitude, people cannot coexist.

*Keep your head low and your goal high
→The goal is to raise strength and power, like an elephant

Rikishakai was born cause we believe that power and gratitude are the two Kyokushin spirits.

"Knowledge of traditional martial arts and traditional arts"

Addition is fine, but subtraction should never be done.
This is my basic principle, my way of thinking about martial arts and karate.

Do not subtract traditional teachings and techniques in martial arts and karate.
In other words, do not omit, remove or lessen.
However, you can do as many additions as you like.
You can revise and add your spirit and technique as much as you like.

Low head and high eyes

Keep your mouth shut and be open minded

Honor and respect from where it started

"One generation of karate idiots"
