To preserve and promote 総裁 倍達 大山 Sosai Masutatsu Oyama's vision of Kyokushinkai Kan Karatedō. In 1957, the name “Kyokushin” or “Ultimate Truth” was adopted for Sosai's Karate Organization, which had 700 members by then, despite the high drop-out rate due to the severity of training. Nevertheless, practitioners of other styles also came from around the world to train under him in Jis-sen Kumite (full-contact fighting).
国際 極真会 空手道 合 リべラ 道場 International Kyokushinkai Karatedō Union Rivera Dōjō (IKU/NYC) main objective is to promotes Traditional 極真会館 空手道 Kyokushinkai Kan Karatedō via 只管 スエット Shikan Suetto or Just to Sweat, which means that one encompasses and embodies one's training to transcend oneself, which manifests in all facets of one's life. This tenet: to leave one's Ego at the door is at the forefront of one's Karatedō (Empty-Handed Way), which is a Path or Road, hence, the Dō, which represents one's journey in one's life.
Furthermore, the entire essence of one's training is for one to lose one's Ego, i.e., the removal of one's Ego-laden perspectives and to encompass a loving, compassionate, empathetic Way of life via non-discriminatory paradigms, which is known as Equanimity (Equality). We are all brothers and sisters or Karatekas 空手家 (practitioners) of Karatedō. So, with this in mind, we help one another and bow humbly to one another as a representation of ourselves, because being respectful, which is displayed via our bowing and saying "OSU!" only underscores our lack of Ego and that we are no better than anyone else, in fact we are all the same even though we are separate Sentient Beings.
