Photo of Sosai Mas. Oyama-
A photographic portrait of Sosai Mas. Oyama
in his meridian of life. The photo is so excellent that it catches
the very essence of Sosai Mas. Oyama, as typified by something both
dignified and benevolent perceived in his penetrating eyesight. At
the lower right of the photo, you recognize a transcription of his
real autograph as well as the embossed mark of the Kyokushinkaikan.
The giclee print reveals any subtle differences in color. This
portrait is the same as the one displayed in front of the Shinto
altar at the Kyokushinkaikan Honbu Dojo. As in the outer plaque of
the product, the frame of the photo is also made of fraxinus
spaethiana whose gorgeous grain makes a fine contrast with the photo.

reproduced in the same size, material, and design as the original.

the kanji characters reading Oyama sosai (Sosai Oyama), below which
are ten gold embroidered lines to stand for the 10th Dan as well as

that Sosai Mas. Oyama would regularly use when he was alive.
of the Fist-
In his early years, Sosai Mas. Oyama went over to the
United States and spent his days there fighting with numerous
fighters of martial arts. One day, he attempted to cut 12 co-ca-cola
bottles with his bare hands in the presence of other fighters and
succeeded in cutting nine out of them. On seeing the scene, the
fighters shouted "God hand" in unison, which then became
another name that is widely recognized to best symbolize Sosai Mas.
Oyama.That "God hand" comes in the form of a relief. Of the
great many photos of Sosai Mas. Oyama's right fist, the one taken
late in his life is selectively reproduced into a copper relief on
which gold is plated. The relief engraves the history of Sosai Mas.
Oyama together with that of Kyokushin. With this fist, Oyama cut
bottles, split boulders, and won numerous fierce fights. The fist is
said to have formed thick calluses on it, for Oyama would beat the
fist 300 times a day with an iron hammer to train it to be tougher
and tougher. The relief allows you to realistically recognize the
"fist calluses" as well as the thumb's nail, part of which
was chipped in a street fight just after the end of the war. The
relief looks three-dimensional and quite lifelike.
-A Relief of the
Here is a replica of the relief portion of the memorial
plaque that was customarily denoted to a limited number of parties
concerned, including the guests of honor at all Japan or world
tournament programs that used to be held every four years;
representatives of participating countries such as kings and prime
ministers; and other parties who supported Kyokushin or contributed
to its expansion. The relief represents the scene of Sosai Mas.
Oyama's fighting with a raging bull. It is a perfect replica of the
relief from the sole original memorial plaque that is left at the
Kyokushinkaikan Honbu (Headquarters). The relief is made of copper
and is plated with silver. In his struggling days of seeking the
utmost strength, Sosai Mas. Oyama put himself through showdowns
against not only numerous martial arts masters but also "bulls"
that do not understand any language or rules. Oyama tried out his
strength on bulls, partly to train himself but largely to seek the
utmost form of a fight far beyond real matches with human fighters.
This challenge eventually made the strength of the Kyokushin style
recognized worldwide. According to the records, Oyama fought with 47
bulls both in Japan and overseas. He reverently buried all the bulls
he killed and held a memorial service for them.

The Dojo Kun is the seven articles of
oaths into which the Kyokushin principles are organized. When Sosai
Mas. Oyama founded the Kyokushinkaikan, he prescribed them under the
supervision of Eiji Yoshikawa, a famous author who wrote the life of
Musashi Miyamoto that Oyama respected greatly. As was the case with
many Japanese in the chaotic post-war Japan, young Oyama was lost in
the way he should take in life, when he encountered Eiji Yoshikawa's
'Miyamoto Musashi'. Recalling the days when he read the life of
Musashi for the first time, Oyama once said, "I was filled with
overwhelming impression at Musashi's way of life as a genuine samurai
who was not only exceptionally strong but also lived up to his
The following characters are printed on the brass
plates. These are the motto of Sosai Mas. Oyama that would best
represent the spiritual fundamentals of Kyokushin among his numerous
works of calligraphy. The passage bespeaks the rigors of the
kyokushin practioners' training as well as the virtue of mastering
the secrets of an art. In an effort to spread the art and knowledge
of Kyokushin, Oyama frequently referred to this passage both in and
outside his dojo and wrote it down wherever he had a chance
