Kyo Ku Shin was the first full contact martial art to come out of Japan it is the roots of the K-1 or Pride or whatever else there is. This presentation is simply amazing you will see knock outs like you have never seen before. NO PADDING. The waterfall training; the ice water training; tree punching and without a doubt some of the most amazing breaking techniques ever captured on film. Fire breaks; Ice breaks; concrete and baseball bat breaks; its all here in the Kyo Ku Shin Way. You will see one karate ka pierce a side of beef with his finger tips; another splits a watermellon with his finger tips while baseball bats are kicked thru like tooth picks. The kata of Kyu Ku Shin Kai; the basic techniques and just too much to mention. Low kicks from hell; devastating axe kicks; round house kicks that hit full blast; no padding. Just to stay in the ring is most certainly the fighting spirit of old Japan come alive. An absolute must for anyone interested in FULL CONTACT MARTIAL ARTS. Approx. 58 min.
