Hi /asp/.

Is it worth starting Kyo Karate? I did Shotokan for like 9 years, got a brown belt, stopped for a while and have been doing Muay Thai for about a year and BJJ for 6 months now. I plan on continuing doing Thai/Boxing for quite a while.

Question: Does Kyokushin bring anything to the table that Thai doesn't?

As a sidenote, does Kyo really make you basically invincible to body punches? I've seen videos of kyo guys in bareknuckle fights where body blows do zilch to them. That'd be quite useful

Kyokushin fighters with 15+ years experience (around what it takes to get a brown belt) look invincible to body shots because they have been hit in the body the entire time. It's just a matter of conditioning which you could get from other combat arts but most don't train as hard.in other words Kyo guys start getting hit early and spar early. I have done MT as well but I prefer kyo because you know your body more in depth with kihons kata and kumite
Tl;dr yes it is worth

unfortunately they have literally 0 head punching defense, which is literally THE most common attack in striking

waste, anon. also mas oyama didn't even fight bulls, he fought an ox, which is akin to a dog in japan.

let me tell you a little bit about why you should look into goju, the parent style to kyokushin

this invincible body you speak of, that comes from goju training. Intense body conditioning so when you get hit it hurts your opponent more than it hurt you.
it also incorporates grappling as a key component so you can transition easily between all phases of combat.

Do it, you can spar full contact twice a week and get no brain damage.

I train Kyokushin twice a week and Muay Thai sparing once a week with the Kyokushin boys.
