Kyokushin Karate participates in San Shou Exchange Tournament

0

Kancho Hatsuo Royama and Shihan Tsuyoshi Hiroshige visited Beijing from June 23rd to 28th 2004 in response to a formal invitation last October from the Official Chinese Martial Arts Association. The objective was to discuss ongoing exchange, especially the idea of a series of tournaments between Kyokushin Karate and Chinese Kung Fu, in the form of Sanda, or San Shou as it is often know in the West. As Kyokushin Karate was until now completely unknown in China, Kancho Royama saw this as an excellent opportunity to formally take our first steps to introducing our karate to the original home of Japanese martial arts and thus encourage ongoing strong cultural ties between China and Japan based on the common ground of the martial arts.
