IKO KYOKUSHINKAIKAN NEDERLAND
IKO KYOKUSHINKAIKAN NEDERLAND is an Official Branch of the International Karate Organization (IKO) Kyokushinkaikan - Kancho Shokei Matsui.
KYOKUSHIN, in Japanese means "Ultimate Truth". The name was selected by our founder, Masutatsu (Mas) Oyama to describe the pinnacle of martial arts training. Not an end result, but a neverending path to the point where dedication, perseverance and sweat meets strength, humility and wisdom.
The International Karate Organization (IKO) and the Kyokushinkaikan follow the Karate way of building character, and training the mind and body to contribute to society, based on Sosai Mas Oyama's Kyokushin spirit:
"Keep your head low (modesty), eyes high (ambition), mouth shut (serenity); base
yourself on filial piety and benefit others."
