Shido-Kan Karate, or Shido for short, is sometimes described as the "Triathlon of Martial arts", as it encompasses full contact karate, Muay Thai, and grappling-based martial arts. Tournaments are full contact and are normally held in a boxing ring. Founded in 1980 with dojo and students in various countries around the world. Although Shido-Kan is a stand-up fighting style that includes kicks, strikes, and punches found in most other styles of karate combined with muay thai, it also utilizes numerous locks, sweeps, and throws often associated with judo, jiu-jitsu and/ or wrestling.
