Qualified Instructors

Robert Joseph Layton


 In 2012 the International Kyokushinkai Union has honored me once again,  with the rank of Yondan. My dojo – “International Kyokushinkai Union –  Arizona” is located in Chino Valley, AZ. (100 miles north of Phoenix) we  are nestled comfortably in the mountains of central Arizona, our  elevation in 4750 feet. I am currently the I.K.U. branch chief for  Arizona. 

Kyokushinkai

Based on Courtesy, Humility and Respect framed by serious and intense  advanced Kyokoshin techniques and discipline. We use the traditional  Kyokushin Terminology. Children and women as well as seniors are given  special consideration for their education, based on their needs.


IKU members must be very respectful to parents, wives, newborn  children and neighbors. Respect must be maintained at all times. Their  friends are shown respect as well as their enemies by patience and  humility.

Our Philosophy

IKU Arizona teaches a life-governing discipline through the philosophy and practice of the Kyokushin Way.
 

By perseverance, study and eternal desire, any man can become great.   

The Kyokushinkai spirit is to keep ones head low (modesty), eye high  (ambitious), reserved in speech (control ones language), kind in heart  (strength in character) and serve other people with fidal piety (serving  others well). This is the spirit of Mas Oyama and these are the  principles of the IKU.
