Without Spirit Budo is But an Empty Shell

By Jon Bluming




Without Spirit Budo is But an Empty Shell

There are many stories told about Kyokushin Kaikan karate pioneer Jon Bluming and his teacher Oyama Masutatsu (Mas Oyama), not all of which are true. Here Bluming, who was for many years Oyama’s senior European student, gives his candid version of the way things were. His history covers time in judo as well.
