OK im having a dilema, like the rest of you i love Kyokushin, but unlike you guys, im in Aikido. Ever since i moved all ive knows is that theres a instructor here by the Name of Ryan Young (hes in the IKO1) but thats all i know. To me aikido can be very confusing for me and i want soo badly to get back into kyokushin. So really im asking should i change back to Kyokushin from aikido? and can some one please please please help find this guy!
P.S. I live in Kelowna, B.C., Canada

It is simple so just think simple
The question is which one you like the most and the best suit on you??
If You find the answer, you can decide by your own
About the man... I am sorry I have no idea where he is
The guy your looking for is listed on the black belts sections of this site but it doesnt give any info on where he trains. But it might be of some use :)

it sounds like to me that you are looking for validation to change over. with that in mind I think it is best that you stick with what you are doing. if you do meet up with Young sensei someday then maybe you can start training, though if I were you, I would never give up what I already started. if you do you will be sorry in the future.

why did you get in trouble for emailing Shihan? doesnt seem to make any sense.

Why not do both? each one will have advantages that the other doesn't, it may get confusing when doing those basic moves and katas but when if comes to fighting sparring you'll have a huge advantage to those that only do one martial arts. (the overall point of martial arts is to be able to defeat your opponent if you have to).

why do you have to train specifically with this guy?

why did you get in trouble for emailing Shihan? doesnt seem to make any sense. i got in trouble because i acted before i asked and it turns out that my sensei's sensei did not get along with corrigals sensei so, i got in a bit of trouble because i could have asked my Shihan.
and the reason why i have to train with Ryan Young is because i was told that he trains good fighters for tounaments and thats something that i want to do (not only that but the closest Kyokushin dojo is a good hour and some away.

At your age you should focus on learning and not on being a great fighter or if you train with a Sensei who had a few good fighters.
Good fighters are eassy to make but great students who they themselves turn out to be great instructors is much harder and that is the instructor you would want to train with.
