here is some info about it its a type of karate.

What is Bushido-Kai?

Bushido comes from “bushi” meaning warrior and “do” meaning way. Literally it is the way of the warrior.

Bushido-Kai means “school of the way of the fighter”. Bushido-Kai is not a style – it is the name of schools which have a direct heritage under the Kyokushinkai system as taught by Sensei Holzbauer. The Bushido-Kai schools are both pragmatic and traditional. Pragmatic in that they have incorporated many techniques outside the Kyokushin, and traditional in their adherence to basic tenants of the original system which are timeless and absolute.

The organization of the Bushido-Kai Karate schools and certain other black belts from other martial arts systems is the American Bushido-Kai Karate Association (ABKA). This association is for the ongoing promotion of competition, fellowship, and learning. The Bushido-Kai schools will always maintain the integrity of karate do.

What is Kyokushin-Kai?
The Truthful Way

Kyokushin Karate was founded by Masutatsu (Mas) Oyama, who was born 27 July 1923 in South Korea. He started his martial arts training at the age of 9 and excelled in many styles. By the age of 24 he was already 4th Dan (in Shotokan Karate).

In 1946 he trained for 14 months at Mt Minobu, then emerged in 1947 and won the Karate section of the Japan National Martial Arts Tournament. He decided to devote his life to Karate, and once again went to the seclusion of the mountains to train. There he perfected his skills, training for 12 hours a day. Eighteen months later he emerged, ready for any challenge.

Mas Oyama traveled to America in 1952 to demonstrate Karate. There he toured for a year doing demonstrations and accepting challenges from boxers, wrestlers, etc. Through all this he was never defeated, and usually won in the first minute of the fight.

His first Dojo was behind Rikkyo University. This was the beginning of Kyokushinkai-Kan.

In his quest to make Kyokushin the strongest Karate, he began the 100 Man Kumite tradition, where a person must fight 100 challengers in a row, all on the same day. Sosai Oyama did this on 3 consecutive days (300 fights).

Since 1975, Sosai Oyama and Kyokushinkai have staged the most successful Full Contact World Tournament every 4 years. Sosai Oyama died on 26 April, 1994 due to lung cancer.

Kyokushin style stresses both the need for a realistic approach to combat and the necessity of mastering self in terms of spiritual discipline. It has become a world wide and highly respected style. Particular emphasis is placed on hard fighting, hard forms, and breaking has given the Kyokushinkai Karateka the nickname of hard bodies and their dojo – “the school of hard bodies.” Kyokushinkai, true to its name ”the truthful way” strives toward integrity in its teaching and application that its practitioners might strive toward truth and discipline in both body and spirit.

I know what Kyokushin is and the Bushido.

Bushido Kai? Seems very strange to me, that someone would take the name of a text as their school name. Other than my disagreement with the name.

Kyokushin is pretty hard, if you are not conditioned dont bother turning up. Make sure you can take a few strikes, but dont start trading blows with these guys. If you can lock them up or ground them you will last longer. Depends on how long the person has been studying as to how conditioned and powerful they will be. Be sharp.

Yours in Aiki.

i have personally studied northern seven stars praying mantis and my advice to you is use your speed and tie up your opponent,tie up his arms than trip him so he stumbles, than kick his legs,

what a great martial art, i have moved to bjj now, only because i like it better,
but good for you mantis is great, i hope you beat those guys and stay close to them , don't let them keep a distance im sure they can kick

JJ fighter, I dont know whether you have heard of Kyokushin, but its brutal at all ranges.

Anyway Mantis, just make sure that you are quicker and more powerful than your opponent.

I wish it was as easy as that. Um, Seven Star should be able to deal with a Kyokushin fighter but it wouldn't be an easy match if both are well trained.
