So you're a karateka huh?

Nice. I used to dabble in Shotokan myself before falling head over heels in love with Muay Thai, so I know how addictive martial arts can be. Even more so when you don't have to pull shots.
You should seriously consider trying your hand at kickboxing possibly even MMA. While you'll probably have to take a little boxing since karate punching doesn't transfer very well, the footwork and kicks require very little adaptation while the flexibility you gain from Karate makes it easier to pull off certain submissions like armbars or my personal favourite, the Triangle Choke. Lyoto Machida and a few K1 champions have already proved that Karate can work.

It would simply be a case of following the old Bruce Lee saying: take what is useful, discard what is useless and what is essentially your own.

Just a thought. Love your gallery BTW.

At the moment I'm more focussed on getting to black belt and doing some tournament fighting, but in future I'll probably consider doing something else (like Muay Thai or Brazilian Jujitsu). If I wanted to do MMA, then I would like to have done at least a couple of martial arts beforehand. However, because of my university studies and other things, I don't have the time.

Our training involves a lot of drills for full-contact fighting involving both punching and kicking along with blocking and footwork. The founder of Kyokushin Karate had incorporated the best of many martial arts, including Muay Thai and Shotokan, and he himself was a black belt in multiple styles before forming our style over fifty years ago. I have watched a few Kyokushin trained fighters fight in things like K1 and MMA and it seems to be quite effective. But then again, it comes down to the ability of the fighter as well as the training that goes into it.

Anyway, thanks for checking out the gallery.
