I totally agree with the TS. I've sparred in a lot of kyokushin gyms and seen black belts from different places train. I'm not impressed. Kyokushin is easily my least favorite martial art. I think Shotokan is better for fighting and self defense because like six months of full contact kick boxing can turn a Shotokan man into a killer, while people that spent five years zombie walking into chest punches almost can't be helped. If toxic masculinity exists anywhere, it's in kyokushin. You can't reason with those people. They get their shit pushed in daily and it doesn't do them much good. I've never seen people suffer so much to gain so little.
