Since the death of Mas Oyama in April 1994, there has been an extensive dispute regarding the leadership of the International Karate Organisation (IKO), and this has had many international repercussions. In the past too, many Kyokushin luminaries left the Honbu fold for various reasons, and founded their own styles. This website seeks to illustrate, in as apolitical a manner as possible, Kyokushin and its descendants worldwide. I will make every effort to avoid passing judgement. This doesn't mean it won't happen, but so far, others have been far more judgmental than I have been.



Obviously, I have my allegiances, and this may well slant parts of these pages. That is unavoidable, and I make no apologies for that since these pages are, after all, also a reflection of my experience of Kyokushin karate. I do not, however, intend to fight the battles of others for them.
