The Meaning Of OSU!

Osu! Means patience, Respect and Appreciation. In Order to develop a strong body and strong spirit it is necessary to undergo rigorous training. This is very demanding, Because you must push yourself to what you believe to be your limit, and you want to stop, to give up. When you reach this point you must fight yourself and your weakness and you must win! To do this you must learn to preserve. But above all you must be patient. This is OSU!



The reason you subject yourself to hard training is because you care about yourself. This self- respect evolves and expands to become respect for your instructor and fellow students.


When you enter the Dojo you bow and say OSU! This means you respect your Dojo and the time that you spend there. This feeling of Respect is OSU!



During training you push yourself as hard as possible because you respect yourself. When you finish you bow to your instructor and fellow students and say OSU!


Thus OSU! Is very important word in Kyokushin karate because it signifies patience, respect and appreciation. That is why we always use the word OSU! To remind ourselves of these indispensable qualities.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Martial Arts

There are many divergent opinions regarding the history of
the martial arts. The most popular belief is that
the martial arts started about 475 A.D. in India with a man
named Daruma. Daruma was known as Bodhidharma in India

- then Da Mo is China - then Daruma. He was from a Brahman tribe of southern
India. In 500 A.D. he immigrated to China where he taught
the Emperor. Darumaís disciples spread to all parts of the Asia.
In 1400 the martial arts were being taught in Okinawa. In 1916,
Karate was introduced into Japan by Gichin Funakoshi. In the
United States, martial arts spread after World War II largely
because of returning American soldiers, like Don Buck. Mas Oyama,
founder of the Kyokushinkai and was one of the first Blackbelts
to bring Karate to other countries as well as the United States in the 1950's.

In the martial arts, a student uses his or her hands and feet as a
pathway to improving the mind and body with emphasis on discipline, respect and
self-confidence. A student learns that he or she is capable of doing his or her best at
all times. In addition to the exercise and camaraderie, the martial arts help build
character. The best age to begin the martial arts is five or six years old. However, age
is no barrier to successfully studying the martial arts, you are never to old.

History Of The School of the Tiger

The first School of the Tiger began in the 50,s and was started by
Don Buck. Don Buck opened many more schools in the years to follow.

Hanshi Don Buck would have wanted


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Choosing an Instructor/School (Dojo)

Martial art instructors vary in quality and substance and
therefore, so do the Dojos. Qualities necessary in a good instructor are:

One who teaches the value of Respect, Discipline, Loyalty, Confidence, Sportsmanship,
Commitment, and Pride,
One who has Credentials from a certified, long- standing organizations,
One whose school is a place of honor and commitment rather than spectacle and promotion

The Styles Of Martial Arts We Teach

Kyokushinkai (Key oh Koo shin kai)


Kyokushin Karate officially started in 1964. Kyokushinkai was founded by Masutatsu Oyama
which he developed over for many years. Kyokushinkai means the "Society Of The
Ultimate Truth." Mas Oyama was Korean born and later change his name from Yong I Choi
to Masutatsu Oyama. Mas Oyama was known worldwide for his incredible feats of strength and
endurance. Sosai Mas Oyama has brought forth a karate focusing on rigorous training and
discipline. Kyokushin has become known as the "Strongest Karate," or "The
Knockout System Of Karate". He originally trained with Funakoshi in Shotokan and So
Nei Chu in Goju Ryu. The Kyokushin has gained popularity world wide, membership is over 10
million. Two of the illustrious students include Sean Connery (James Bond, The Rock, etc.)
and Dolf Lungren ( He-man, the Punisher etc.)

Don Buck was one of Sosai Mas Oyama 1st students.
He received his 4th degree blackbelt in Sept. 1960 from Sosai Mas Oyama.

Aiki-Jujitsu


Aiki-Jujitsu is an ancient system of combat founded in Japan between 1185-1336. This is
the art form Aikido and Judo derived from. Aiki-Jujitsu was only taught to a few nobles in
Japan, in order to keep Aiki-Jujitsu in it purest form.

"Ai" means love, Harmony, "Ki" means vital energy,
"Ju" means gentle and "jitsu" means art. Aiki-Jujitsu teaches kicks,
strikes, throws, chokes, joint locks, holds and restraints, giving you a choice between
hurting your opponent or just restraining the opponent. Aiki-Jujitsu also teaches ground
fighting.

Strong Tiger Kung-Fu


Strong Tiger Kung-Fu is basically from the Hung-Gar and Tai- Chi Chaun Kung-Fu systems.
Don Buck was known in China as The Strong Tiger because of his great strengths. Don has
studied many different styles of Kung-Fu and has taken what he preferred about them and
added them to our training. Kung-Fu is a soft discipline of martial arts in comparison to
Karate. The Chinese copied the animals and insects to learn how to fight.

Self-Defense
Self- defense starts with awareness, the ability to recognize trouble and the knowledge to
handle difficult situations. Our Dojo teaches you to anticipate problems and what options,
you have to stay safe in bad situations. In today's world , both youth or adults need to
know self- defense techniques.

Why Study at Our School?

6 Major Reasons To Study At Our School

1. Exercise
Exercise hones one's mind and body into top condition. Whether you are young or old, male
or female, exercise is a necessity for mental and physical well being. Fitness assists the
students with problem solving, decision making, tension and stress reduction, and
learning. At the School of the Tiger, Sensei Buck emphasizes warm up exercise and many
techniques such as kicks, punches, throws, strikes, holds and restraints, to contribute to
his student's physical fitness.

2. Self-Control/Discipline
Sensei Buck Stresses Self-Defense and self-reliance rather than training just fighters.
Non-violent, peaceful resolution to problems and learning how to avoid bad situations are
important aspects of the school's training. Knowing how to react in a violent situation
is the best way to avoid being drawn into one. Self- control and discipline can often
diffuse a dangerous situation.

3. Confidence Building
At Buck's School of the Tiger building self-confidence helps the student to be successful
in life's pursuits. Being sure of your abilities and in emotional control will give the
student confidence to achieve any goal. A battle may be lost from time to time but the war
will be won!

4. Lifetime Achievement
Studying the martial arts can provide a lifetime of personal growth and unending
knowledge. There is much to learn and much to practice on a regular basic. One of Sensei
Buck's instructors told him that practicing a technique 100 times is for learning, 1000
times is for knowledge, and 10,000 times is for ownership.

5. Self-Truths
When the student is in touch with mind and body, the ability to control thoughts and
actions becomes easier and clear. Sensei Buck stresses the importance of thought and
action, integrity, and self- reliance. "Know thyself and the rest will follow."

6. Enjoyments
Our school is family oriented and we encourage family participation. We have family
outings such as annual picnic, Christmas parties, award dinners and pot luck dinners etc.
We do a lot of tournaments outside the area, which we travel together as a family. We have
gone to Disneyland, Disney world, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, North Carolina, Illinois and many
other places. We do fund raisers to help pay for these trips. These trips are like family
vacations, we try to have as much fun as possible and still be serious about our reason
for being there. Other enjoyment is seeing the camaraderie between the students to other
students and to their Sensei. To see the improvements and accomplishments of the students.

Dojo Procedures
The Bowing that we teach is similar to a hand shake greeting. As
it is said, the Martial Arts begin with courtesy and ends with courtesy. Equally, the
Karate student thinks always courtesy. The Mosou or meditation is a time for mental
preparation and reflection. These procedures have no religious meaning.

Bowing
Always bow when entering or leaving the dojo facing forward towards the room.
Always bow to the instructor before and after classes
Always bow as a greeting to your Sensei or student to student.

Meditation (Mosou)
Mosou is the meditation at the beginning and end of class. The students stand with feet
together, hands at the side with eyes closed. Mosou is the time to get mentally ready for
class. Mosou also occurs at the end of class, so the student can reflect about what has
been learned and what needs to be practiced.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What the Colored Belts Signify

The belts are a ranking that measures the student's progress in
the martial arts. If the student is prepared, testing can take place every three to four
months. Testing is held at the Dojo (school) that the student attends except for Blackbelt
testing. Blackbelt testing is conducted at the Natomas Dojo in front of a board of judges.
The fee cost for testing covers the cost of belts and diplomas . An explanation of the
significance of each belt rank is listed below.


White belt




In the beginning there was only light, the light of knowledge, the beginning of your journey. This is the equivalent to the beginning of his/hers education. There are three degrees within this rank. Each exhibited by a green stripes on the white belt.




Greenbelt




When the basic techniques are learned, the student stands at the foot of the mountain. Achieving the greenbelt is like climbing through the forest on your journey upward. There are three degrees to acquire within this rank. Each exhibited by white stripes on the greenbelt.




Brown belt




As the student leaves the forest behind; the climb becomes increasingly difficult as more skill is required. The understanding of the martial art knowledge and truths begin. There are three degrees of brown belt each shown by a white stripe on the belt. For your brown belt you need to write a report as well as being ready mentally and physically.




Junior Shodan




The junior ranking is for students attained the knowledge of a blackbelt but are under sixteen years of age. At the age of sixteen , it is necessary to test again for there full blackbelt (Shodan). The belt is black and white.



Blackbelt




The student has now reached the summit of his/hers mountain. As the student reaches the top, they notice the sky is black and there is so much of it. He/she then realizes there is so much knowledge out there to acquire. Proud of achieving the blackbelt, new challenges await. Degrees of blackbelt are exhibited with gold (yellow) stripes on the blackbelt. The student has now acquired knowledge equal to a high school diploma.

Katas:


The word kata literally means "shape" or "form". A kata is a
sequence of blocks, kicks and punches from one or more stances,
involving movement forward, backward and to the sides. The number
of movements and their sequence are very specific. The balance between
offensive and defensive techniques, the stances used and the direction
and flow of movement all serve to give each kata its distinctive character.
Through the practice of kata, the traditional techniques used for fighting
are learned. Balance, coordination, breathing and concentration are also
developed. Done properly, kata are an excellent physical exercise and
a very effective form of total mind and body conditioning. Kata embodies the
idea of ren ma, or "always polishing" – with diligent practice, the moves of
the kata become further refined and perfected. The attention to detail that is
necessary to perfect a kata cultivates self-discipline. Through concentration,
dedication and practice, a higher level of learning may be achieved, where the
kata is so ingrained in the subconscious mind that no conscious attention is needed.
This is what the Zen masters call mushin, or "no mind." The conscious, rational
thought practice is not used at all – what was once memorized is now spontaneous.
The practice of traditional kata is also a way for the Karateka to pay respect to
the origins and history of Kyokushin Karate and the martial arts in general.



Origins
Kyokushin kata are often categorized as "Northern Kata" or "Southern Kata"
based upon their origin and development.

The Northern Kata :
are similar to those found in Shotokan Karate, since they were developed from
Mas Oyama's training under Gichin Funakoshi.
Master Funakoshi in turn derived these kata from Chinese Kempo and Shorin Ryu,
the Okinawan karate style based on Chinese Shaolin (i.e. "Shorin") Kempo.
These kata utilize long, powerful stances and strong blocks and strikes.

The Southern Kata :
were developed from Mas Oyama's study of the Okinawan karate style of Goju Ryu under So Nei Chu.
The movements in these kata are more circular and flamboyant than those in the Northern Kata.


1) Taikyoko 1,2,3,4,5
Taikyokyu: means taking the overview, to see the whole rather than focusing on the individual parts.
It also means to keep an open mind, or "beginner's mind." The beginner's mind is what
is striving for during training and in life. The beginner's mind does not hold prejudice and
does not cling to a narrow view. The beginner's mind is open to endless possibilities.

2) Sukugi 1,2,3

3) Pinan 1,2,3,4,5
Pinan:
means peace and harmony, literally translated as "great peace" or "peaceful mind."
Though the physical moves of kata involve techniques used for fighting, the purpose
of kata is to develop a calm, peaceful mind and harmony between the mind and body.

4) Sanchin
Sanchin:
means "three battles" or "three conflicts," in reference to the fact that it seeks to develop three
elements at a time:
– The mind, body and the techniques,
– The internal organs, circulation and the nervous system, and
– The three ki, located in:
– the top of the head (tento),
– the diaphragm (hara), and
– the lower abdomen (tan den).
Sanchin is an isometric kata where each move is performed in a
state of complete tension, accompanied by powerful, deep breathing
(Ibuki) that originates in the lower abdomen (tan den). The practice
of Sanchin not only leads to the strengthening of the body, but to the
development of the inner power (ki) and the coordination of mind and body.

5) Tensho
Tensho :
means rolling or fluid hand. Tensho was one of Mas Oyama's favorite kata.


6) Yantsu
Yantsu:
means to keep pure, striving to maintain the purity of principles and
ideals rather than compromising for expediency.

7) Gekusai Sho
8) Gekusai Dai
Gekusai Dai and Gekusai Sho:
are derived from the words Sai, meaning fortress or stronghold, and
geki, meaning breakdown. Gekusai can also mean "empty air." The
kata teach strength through fluidity of motion, mobility and the utilization
of various techniques. Flexibility of attack and response will always be
superior to rigid and inflexible strength.

9) Tsuki No Kata
Tsuki No:
means fortune and luck. Good fortune and luck does not come
by waiting. For every punch (Tsuki) in this kata, envision that a
personal barrier is being broken down. Strong, persistent effort
directed at problems will bring good fortune.

10) Saifa
Saifa:
means big wave, . Saifa can also be translated as "smashing." No matter how large a problem
is encountered, with patience, determination and perseverance
(Osu) one can rise above and overcome it, or smash through and get beyond it.

11) Seinchin
Seinchin:
Samurai warriors would go on expeditions lasting months or longer.
They need to maintain their strength and spirit over long periods of time.
This kata is long and slow, with many movements performed from the
Kiba-dachi stance. Often the legs became painfully tired and the importance
of maintaining a strong Spirit becomes clearly evident.

12) Nohi
Nohi

This Kata is originally from Korea. It is a Breaking Kata,

While you are doing this kata you need to break either tile, brick or board


13) Kanku Dai
Kanku:
means sky gazing, and the kata is also known as the "rising sun."
Literally translated, Kan means good observance, and Ku means
universe, air or emptiness. The first move of the kata is the formation
of an opening with the hands above the head, through which one
gazes at the universe and rising sun. The significance is that no
matter what problems are faced, each day is new and the universe
is waiting. Nothing is so terrible that it affects the basic reality of existence.

14) Garyu

15) Seipai

16) Shushiho

17) Family Lau

This Kata is from Hungar Kung-fu. It represents the Martial arts Family sir name Lao


18) Wushu
This kata is from Wushu Kung-fu and is a kata with acrobatic moves in it
