The Kyokushinkai, which translates to society of the ultimate truth in Japanese, was established in 1964 by Masutatsu Oyama and is based on the principles of hard work, self-improvement, and discipline.
Masutatsu Yama was born Choi Yeong-eui on June 4, 1923, in what is now South Korea. He is also known by the monikers Mas Oyama or Sosai. Before going to his sister’s farm in Manchuria, Southern China at the age of nine, he resided in a village in Southern Korea. It was there that he first encountered martial arts, learning a style of Chinese boxing from a farmer working on his sister’s farm.
At the age of 15, Sosai joined in the Yamanashi Aviation School of the Imperial Japanese Army after his brother.
