Although I don't do Kyokushin personally, I know it was founded by Mas Oyama, who was a renowned "tough" and street fighter in his younger days, so I'd imagine it'd be quite effective and practical.

I understand Kyokushin puts more emphasis on breaks and power technique than some other schools.

the karate techniques based in the style i practise are kyokushin based.....but as they say it is the hardest karate around!!! all powerful techniques!!!

it is good though..but tough going. read some stuff about mas oyama.....the guy did a continuous 300 man kumite....n the only reason he stopped is coz know one would fight hiom anymore!!! he also puched down an opak tree!!!! the guy was a psycho....but what a champ!!

whoa, whoa, bjjbarbie

I may be confused on the lingo. By 300 man kumite do you mean he sparred 300 guys like all at once, one at a time in a row, or am I way off base on this one???

Na... Not at once

He did, I think, 100 per day for three days, or thereabouts. Each fight is in sequence, he didn't actually have to "win" each one, just complete it and carry on...

Perhaps someone can enlighten us on the exact rules of this, i.e what constitutes a "fight" and a "win"?

Good style. If you want a tough style that could be a good choice. It emphasizes more sparring and conditioning than kata.
Kyokushin started a different form of competition in Japan: Knockdown Full Contact Karate.
Any related style would be OK too (Ashihara, Shidokan, Daido-Juku, Seido Kaikan, Byakuren Kaikan,...)

Kyokushinkai is a mix of Shotokan, goju ryu and various other styles, such as Muay Thai etc. Most of the Kata's come straight from Shotokan.

In the 100 man Kumite, you have to fight 100 people, you don't have to win every fight, although the rule of thumb is its quicker to knock them out, that way you are more likely to complete the kumite. You can't lose, or get knocked down for more than five seconds or its over.

from what i read, mas oyama fought 52 bulls in his life time. killing 3. it's said he stopped because some heal the world org asked him to (killing bulls is not the nicest thing to do, you know). i've also read that he was going to fight a bear, but didn't due to funding problems..
