INTERNATIONAL F.S.A KENSHINKAN
FOUNDER & KANCHO(DIRECTOR)-TAKEYUKI HAYAMA
In today's climate of globalization it has become necessary
for Japan to become more international. We believe that through
karate, a well-known part of Japanese culture, we can engage
in cultural exchange with people from abroad thus deepening
our understanding of each others cultures and in the process
contributing to the internationalization of Japan.
I believe Karate encompasses a spiritual aspect as well
as one of self protection. When you look now at combative
arts being represented by entertainment sports like K-1
and Pride and see karate competitors put on gloves and enter
the ring to lose to a kickboxer, it really seems that karate
is not effective. Then when you see someone grapple with
there opponent and a few minutes later win the bout using
kansetsuwaza (joint manipulation) it is evident that this
technique would be a powerful tool against multiple opponents
or against opponents with a knife.
Without disputing the notion that the technical punches
of boxing are the most powerful, in a real fight situation
traditional karate techniques like attacks to the eyes and
groin are surprisingly effective against punches, it is
then very easy to follow these techniques up with kansetsuwaza
In September, 2003, with the aim of reviving traditional
karate technique, we held a tournament that showcased an
historical form of karate, allowing attacks to the eyes,
groin and bare-handed punches to the face. After the tournament
we received a huge and positive response from both the karate
world and the combative arts world.
Please come and see the fight of the century. We look forward
to seeing you as a competitor or spectator at this tournament.
