Kyokushin 極真 revisited

I was procrastinating to search for the meaning of those 3 chinese characters (汉语) in the background. Finally, I got on to it yesterday...

Kyokushin 極真 is Japanese for "the society for the ultimate truth." In case you're unfamiliar, Kyokushin is a self-defense art. The stones are found at the shinto gate that I posted before. I think we're very good at the sport as in my search I found out that Szentes is the main branch for Hungary in the Int'l karate organisation.

Very dry topic, I know, but it has to be done ..haha. Hopefully tomorrow i'll have something more fun!

Hi Kris!
I'm back in Stavanger safe and happy! Miss a lot of things but I will catch them up.
I would like to thank you for keeping visiting my blog while I'm away. I do appreciate it! Thanks :)

Kris - Your pictures are amazing too and I really like the effects you give to them. To answer you on the comments your left on BA blog, I always use Photoshop. Are you using the same tool to come up with such nice compositions?

:P
great view of this Chinese character!
And the Karate is also very popular in China too. But it seems that Yoga is much more popular now.
and for me, i prefer the yoga too.
:D

karate is a big thing here ... together with others of the same genre. i'm not familiar with their symbols, though. :D

Thanks for the link because the earlier post of the Shinto Gate is very different from what I think of as its shape and appearance.

at times I am also worried that my topic is too boring or something like that. But since I love calligraphy I loved your post today:)

Kris said...

zsolt,
are you learning calligraphy?
u know what? I hated calligraphy lessons when i was younger :D

ruth,
erm..i know the individual meaning to the character in chinese, but the stones are tribute to Japanese master..so i worked aroud that ;)

maiylah,
funny thing is i saw the symbol on tv last night, which motivated me to posting it today.

Jing,
Yoga for me ,too!

Karine,
