Hi, what are you looking for?


Pillars of Kancho Hatsuo Royama

Only for newcomers, who for the first time or rarely participate on camps, there is effect “AH!” from what happening.

Those who regularly visits and has long been in Kyokushin, for the most of them it’s a routine. Sometimes they like it, sometimes not, but basically all feeling are very similar and it is necessary to seek pleasure in the details, which will undoubtedly be very useful…

But in order to boil the blood, there was excitement and a great desire to do something unusual, extraordinary, unconventional. How to rock 900 people?! Kancho Hatsuo Royama could do it. And these were the pillars. And it was not Ritsu Zen…Many people know that is in the martial arts practices of Kancho Hatsuo Royama special place spans Ritsu Zen. In Russia, and in the world, the basic exercises on training camps is often referred as “pillars” or “Standing in the pillars.” Only deeply penetrated the consciousness of his own adept can feel comfortable in these practices but for many such a state is unattainable.

And when Kancho started talking about the pillars, not once it became clear that he talks about the real pillars. Needed columns at least three meters long and more than 20 cm in diameter! We must pay tribute to the organizers of this summer camp who for a few hours managed to find it.Important in Kyokushin is not a technique, spirit or power of a fighter, important is Kokoro (Heart). When one have kyokushin heart, even a fighter with a gentle spirit and body is ready to feat. And the best in Kyokushin Sensei is not the one who performs the technique and polish it and can bring it to the subtleties to others, but the one who is able to repeatedly ignite, set on fire the hearts of his students! Kancho Hatsuo Royama one of those teachers.
