The techniques of Shidokan Karate have been adopted from various systems (those considered most effective). With techniques from traditional Karate, Muay Thai, Judo, etc., this style is constantly modified and the efficiency of its techniques are constantly verified in various full contact arenas. The Shidokan is best known for the Triathlon, "Karate, Kickboxing, and Grappling". A champion must defeat three opponents under all three rules in one night. This is a grueling test of one's mental and physical strengths. Shidokan tournaments show us that there is something substantial in Karate. They highlight the powerful techniques that often get lost in the intricacies of kata. Shidokan is Karate's most complete answer to critics of Karate. The skill it takes to develop expertise in Karate, Kickboxing and Grappling cannot be argued.
