Kyokushin karate was developed in Japan by Masutatsu Oyama and formally established in 1964. Kyokushin karate has many similarities with other forms of Japanese Karate (such as Shotokan and Gojo Ryu) but has many forms and moves unique to this style. Kyokushin karate is historically a very physical martial art form. Students must spar full contact without pads or gloves.
