    Don't listen to what others are saying; they are wrong. The correct pronunciation is:

    "Key-Yoke-Sheen"

    That's "key" as in "car keys," "yoke" as in "egg yoke" and "sheen" as in "her hair had a sheen to it."

    "O"s, in Japanese, are pronounced "oh," like the "o" in the word "poke."

    "I"s, in Japanese, are pronounced "ee," like the "e" in the word "me."

    "U"s, in Japanese, are pronounced like the "u" in "blue," but in some instances, in Japanese, vowels are not pronounced. This is the case for the "u" in "kyokushin."

    EDIT: Source: "Kyokushin" is a Japanese word, and I know the basics of Japanese.

    I'm not saying I doubt you, but bro...you can't use yourself as a source.

    This. And don't pronounce the "shin" like "chin". There's no "T" sound here.

    it's not kee yo, it's kyo. The k is just a quick little fricative type sound before the 'yo'

    then coo shin
