    He used to when he was younger, then I believe he switched too BJJ once his instructor died.

    GSP says he isn't an MMA fighter...he considers himself a "Full Contact Kyokushin Fighter"

    that one kick they use where it changes directions midway thru and snaps down is pretty crazy....i dont get how they can generate power with that...Glaube Feitosa uses it in K1 and they call it the "Brazilian kick"...he's gotten a couple of KO's with it

    there was a thread made awhile ago about it. there's biographic movie called fighter in the wind, about the inventor of kyokushin. he's korean, and stowed away to japan to become a pilot. in short, he lived on a mountain in japan, trained for some time (can't remember how long). challenged many dojos in japan, to show them that his "karate" is better. he defeated over 200 people, and most of them ended with one punch. he also demonstreted his skills by fighting bulls, and on occassion he'd break their horns, or necks. one time, he got gouged in the stomach, still mustered up strength, and broke its neck. he's pretty badass.

    its been reported, that with his one punch he was able to broke bones, and if u were to block his strongest punch, your arm would break, or get dislocated. in japan, they dubbed him Godhand.

    anyways, kyokushin kicks, if u watch, are all related to tae kyun kicks. the inventor of kyokushin is korean, so he incorporated the kicks in his technique. it frustrates me, especially on sherdog, when they try to say gsp's kicks are karate based.

    hope this helps.

    That was :cool:

    So can anyone explain the 100 Man Kumite? Does one fighter basically go up against 100 fighters in one period, or what?

    Yeah, those are some interesting stories.

    As for the kumite itself, from what I've read, yes. There are also different numerical variations of it, meaning a different amount of opponents. The latest trend seems to be to just spar with your students for a long enough period of time. There's a site that explains it better.
