How Tough Was Oyama’s Winter Training?

“The summer training is a pleasant outdoor excursion for Oyama and his followers,” writes Andy Adams in Black Belt magazine’s FREE download History of Karate: Inside Mas Oyama’s Hard-Core Kyokushin Karate Conditioning Program. “But it’s the winter training that separates the men from the boys. It’s incredibly demanding, and only some 30 of the toughest karateka choose to accompany him and endure the week of hardship.”

What Were the Dangers of Oyama’s Outdoor Conditioning Program?

The potential for injury, pneumonia and frostbite always posed a danger for these bands of rugged karateka. However, even those who were injured or frostbitten didn’t quit and go home. They would practice kata indoors and recover before often plunging right back out into the snow, down to the shore or out into the mountain air for more training!
