Kyokushin is a Full Contact, Bare Knuckle Style of Karate born in Japan. It has a natural progression into what is known as kickboxing or K1 fighting.

In 1980, Kazuyoshi Ishii, a former Shihan under Sosai Mas Oyama—the founder of Kyokushin Karate, established a “shoot-off” Kyokushin called Seidokan Karate. This was the beginning of what we know today as K-1. Kickboxing is not different. With the use of punches to the face (based on boxing techniques) it incorporates the addition of kicks inherited by martial arts such as karate.

Kyokushin is the most realistic and effective form of karate. Our training and conditioning provides us with the ability to take part in most martial arts events known today.

One of our main goals at Guardian Dojo is to be realistic with ourselves, our abilities, and our environment. We are fully aware of the evolution of martial arts in the world today, and strive to constantly adjust to it. Over the years, GDKK has proved that our training is par to the elite kickboxing clubs around the world. We have participated in many kickboxing and Muay Thai tournaments both locally and internationally.

Kickboxing training and drills are taught as a part of the regular class curriculum. Classes specific to kickboxing only are typically reserved for GDKK Competitive Team members. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
