Citations in Techniques[edit]

I know this article needs major editing, but skimming through the article, I noticed how many statements have been made without citations where needed. In this one instance, I have modified "Whilst knees and kicks to the head and face are allowed, owing to the nature of these techniques, injuries are rare [citation needed]and those that cause long-term brain damage, common in boxing, are virtually non-existent. This makes the Kyokushin style of training very popular amongst professionals." to "However, knees and kicks to the head and face are allowed."

If you're going to make a statement like a knee or kick to the face or head will not cause injury, you should back that up with scientific demonstration, because practical experience will tell you otherwise. Advertising-styled statements, such as the last line in the above paragraph, obviously need citation. Nitroblu (talk) 02:42, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Long list of notable practitioners[edit]

The list is getting long: I propose creating Category:Kyokushin kaikan practitioners and removing the people who are only notable because they train/compete Kyokushin kaikan. Comments? jmcw (talk) 18:43, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

As this list is getting longer, I propose to distinguish between "Famous" and "Notable".
"Notable" would be the people who have their fame from MMA or other type of competition.
"Famous" would be the actors, politicians, etc

List is not to horrendous. Basically as long as there is an associated article the list remains useful (cross-referenced).Peter Rehse (talk) 16:59, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Should Louis Gaudinot be added? A UFC Flyweight with a fourth degree black belt? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.100.100.1 (talk) 04:11, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Assuming that "notable practitioners" should be actual practitioners of the art, i'm fairly sure we should remove honorary, clearly political belts like Putin's (he also has a honorary max grade belt in taekwondo, both from the russian federations of said arts). As far as wikipedia goes, he only ever practiced judo and sambo. 93.41.78.41 (talk) 00:03, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

The result of the proposal was move per request.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 00:25, 26 February 2014 (UTC)


KyokushinkaikanKyokushin – Per WP:COMMONNAME. This article is about the style as a whole, not one organization. Throughout the article, the term "kyokushin" is used, not "kyokushinkaikan", and that is far more common in the article's sources, and across sources found on line. It was originally titled "kyokushin", but was moved without discussion some years ago. No reason was given, either. This would be a move back to the far more common term. oknazevad (talk) 16:18, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

I would support that - the current name of the article never sat right by me. The change would bring it in line with other Karate styles such as Shotokan by way of example.Peter Rehse (talk) 13:30, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
I agree that "kyokushin" is more well known. jmcw (talk) 19:30, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

"Legally"[edit]

Random un-involved wikipedian here: the use of the term "legally" several times in the article text reads as somebody trying to assert the primacy of one or the other organizations. It is probably better to describe the *legal proceedings* in some kind of section called "legal conflicts" or whatever rather than making some sort of unequivocal statement.
