KSKM 369 and Capeta v8 p2


Hi all,
Start of a brand new week, and that means more Karate for all your martial arts manga fans. We’ve closed the poll now, and looks like our young prince of Karate seems to be the underdog in this fight. He’s certainly had the tougher fights and had more injuries, so no surprise!
We’ve also got a chapter for racing fans as well, another of the Capeta early chapters. Capeta’s making good progress in the rain now, but will it be enough to get him back into the race?

    Thanks for another quick release, guys! I noticed one mistake in this chapter, though. The term “Khao Thon” (straight knee kick) should be “Khao Trong”. (Trust me, I use Thai language everyday) 😉

      “Khao thon” is from here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muay_Thai

      Actually, it’s just a guess. The original Japanese says “tenkao”, and I can’t really work out what exact Thai word it represents since I don’t know any Thai. I couldn’t find anyone who speaks both Japanese and Thai to help out with Thai terminology and names in this manga.

        Thanks for your reply, CMERTB. But I think the word “Khao thon” in Wikipedia is misspelled (it lacks the “g”). If we look above a bit, you’ll see that “Straight Knee Strike” is listed at Khao Trong.

        But since you mentioned that the original Japanese uses the word “tenkao” so I think the word we’re looking for here is “Tang Khao” which is another term for Khao Trong.

        And if you don’t mind, I might be able to help out a bit with Thai name. 😉

    Thanks for your great work. Keep it up.

    However, I do have to point out a factual error in Mr P´s real world parallel page. Francisco Filho never switched to seidokaikan, but stayed in kyokushin and fought in k-1 under their banner (he is still part of the kyokushin faction run by Matsui). After Oyama died, the rules against fighting as a pro was not as strictly enforced as it had been when he was alive, and many top fighters was allowed to enter k-1 (as long as they did so under kyokushins management). They even started a specific “ichigeki” kyokushin gym & fight-team to prepare fighters for kickboxing and mma. Filho currently runs the Brazilian ichigeki academy (aswell as running ichigeki kickboxing events in south america), as a Matsui-ha kyokushin branch-chief.

      For sure Filho was (and still is) loyal to kyokushin, however it was still a massive coup at the time (early ’90s) for Ishii to get top foreign Kyokushin fighters to strap on the gloves in Seido-only (S-Cup) tournaments directly against Oyama’s wishes. Filho was one of those guys. I would have liked to have pointed out that for many of the foreign fighters Seidokaikan membership was more of an administrative status whilst fighting in Japan and that they returned to their own countries organizations, with myriad political circumstances with Kyokushin Honbu, out of competition – but theres only so much room. Trust me, my first draft of all these pieces read more like a complicated history of Kyokushin politics in the early 90’s. I had to cut some corners to demonstrate the the size of Ishii’s achievement concisely. If I come across as pro-Ishii anti-IKO it’s because the article is focused on him – I was BKK under Steve Arneil at the time. If you know the precise status of Filho (or the other great Brazilians) from the 5th world tournament though the first K1, or there’s anything else about this period you want talk about then get back to me here or on my Batoto account.
