WELCOME TO THE SOCIETY OF THE ULTIMATE TRUTH

In the Martial Arts, introspection begets wisdom…

Revered Masutatsu Oyama, also known as Mas Oyama, was an unparalleled karate master who founded Kyokushinkai, arguably the first and most influential style of full contact karate. Sosai had a remarkable and relevant philosophy not only on the martial arts, but also on how to conduct yourself in your every day life adopting core values such as:

  • Integrity
  • Intelligence
  • Intensity
  • Focus
  • Respect

Dear IKU Instructors,

I do not write these letters for approval. It is for you to read and/or comment. Please do not “LIKE” it.

As an instructor and/or Branch Chief, I would like to bring your attention to living in the traditional path in order to satisfactorily fulfill your service to people. When you teach, you are first serving people. That is the role. You cannot take advantage of people’s lack of knowledge and mislead people in this art. You must teach with your heart, dignity and skill. It should be a privilege and joyful experience for you. Teaching is a blessing. If it is done with ego and greed, it is not appropriate.

Before you attempt to teach and guide another human being, you must review an appropriate plan of action and rehearse it to ensure you are confident. On a daily basis, you are responsible to meditate and ask God to guide you in your ability to serve others. I want to assure you that IKU is the home of the brave and founded to teach and serve innocents with our hearts and dignity and skills. We are here for people.

People are not our step ladder. If, by chance, I find Branch Chiefs and Instructors violating this simple and ultimate principle, it will take two steps. First, I will hang my head in shame that I know someone like that, and secondly, that person’s position will be ended.

The IKU organization is spreading so quickly in the United States, the Western hemisphere in general, and all over the world. It is not because we highlight flashy dancers in the ring but because we are promoting and working on strengthening families and communities. You will be supervised and guided when required or as requested.


After Sosai passed away, we have watched the descent of Kyokushin for almost two decades. As a result, you do not see more than a handful of people trying to guide the organization in an aberrant way. They are not instructors, fighters or organization heads. Their tools are solely ego and greed. They try to eliminate any reasonable voice that is closer to common sense with their arrogance and ignorance.

All Kyokushin members have a right to communicate and develop ethical and kind relationships with other Kyokushin members around the globe.

In the next message, I will discuss the strict rules, regulations and methods in teaching this art.
May God bless all.
