Oyama Karate Kyokushin Hungary (OKKH) was created in 1998, after the split of the so far united kyokushin world that followed the death of the martial art founder Masutatsu Oyama. The new organization soon proved that one of the strongest groups was formed in Hungary. Led by József Borza, a 6th dan master (4th dan back then) we managed to establish one of Hungary's most important groups. We have a membership of 800 persons in 23 dojos, our results in Hungary and abroad speak for themselves. OKKH is associated with high-quality and harmonized professional karate activity. The way we teach traditional karate in the dojos and our international demonstrations brought us worldwide respect. Our belt-exams and black belt gradings are done following strict rules and high expectations. During the years we graded many black belt masters who help us teaching karate in Hungary.
