Tameshiwari is a breakthrough, and is about learning how to overkomme your fears and believe that it is possible for you. You must first win against yourself, your fears and insecurities before you can win against your opponent or the Wood you like to break, or the next exam, the job interview, or against assault on the street.

Kyokushin is about focusing on important tings in life and living in the present with full focus to your surroundings. Be humble and show respect, it sharpens your focus and attention. You can learn to believe in yourself and be free from insecurity in presserende situations.

"Say to yourself if otters can learn it then I can learn it, start slowly, strengthen your hans with 50 strokes every dag, not to hard, after 3 months, increase the number of strokes on your makiware to 100 strokes, after 3 months increase the number to 200 strokes.

Allways start with small steps, do not become overconfident when you have success, be greatful and humble".

Osu Dear Friends Several studiens have asked if it is important to train Makiwara training.
Tameshiwari is not for beginners, it requires an experienced instructor, just as Katas can not be learned from YouTube, but must be learned from an instructor with insight and experience. I have seen many who have broken their hand, or had a severe sprain so they could not continue their participation in a tournament for both the World Cup and European Championships due to lack of preparation and no makiwara training. Lacked focus on Tameshiwari is a big mistake, to many have only focused on Kumite, In Kyokushin we focus on the real Sosai Kyokushin Karate Do made by Sosai Mas Oyama.10 Dan.

Makiwara training is important for your personal development both physically and mentally. The reason why Sosai Kyokushin karate Do was named the world strongest Karate Do is precisely because of Tameshiwari training, it made Sosai so fearsome.

It help With your focus and strength the body part used in kumite and Tameshiwari which is a personal test of your achieved strength and technique after prolonged training. It has also been my strength in Kumite that I was strong in Tameshiwari, my hands, feet and shins were strong, which helped in my fights in open weight clas when I had to fight against opponnent who weighed 20-40 kg more than my self.

I has trained regular makiwara training for more than 48 years I still do it also stimulates the 6 meridians that run from the fingers up towards the head, they are important for our energy level and well-being. 

Dear friends several of you misunderstand the principle of markiwara training, first it is about training your technique on a fixed object, then it is about focus training which is repeated thousands of times so that each technique is deeply integrated into our subconscious, then it is about about hardening the body and the body part you want to use for Tameshiwari / kumite,

In the end it is about strengthening not only knuckles, but whole middle tissue and bones, when we hit a solid surface with knuckles, then it is typical for a well-trained hand not knuckles that are damaged, but tissues, bones and nerves in the middle hand that can be severely sprained, with heavy bleeding in the tissue and therefore if not treated properly, hard crystals form which can cause reduced movement in the wrist, sometimes scar tissue, cartilage formation, and fossilization of tissue must be removed with surgery, therefore important start slow, curing takes time and we are all different, some people have stronger f ysik, bones and muscles like yeast that they can do more than others and faster perform difficult Tameshiwari. 

Listen to your body avoid trying to ferment things because others can do it without harm, always do what suits your body, a skilled karate practitioners are smart, make your karate future a safe development so you can also do it when you grow old this one written on the basis of 48 years of training and 20 years as a pain therapist, and with more than 100 seminars in Tameshiwari, a great experience arises which I hope can help others. 

Osu In the light of Sosai
