Never-seen video (filmed in 16mm?) from a fight at the 1979 Kyokushinkai British Open (aka European Championships).



Notice the win with a hiza geri (knee kick) which was one of Lundgren's "specialty" and is not authorised in karate competitions other than Kyokushin...

A never-seen "vintage" fight from the Team Kumite Final of the Swedish championships, 1980


(Looks like it's a point fighting competition, not Kyokushin)

Brian Fitkin re-printed an updated edition of his "KYOKUSHIN KATA" book initially published in 2003, in which Dolph Lundgren performs two advanced katas (see image right below).

(Hans) Lundgren was already featured in Fitkin's 1982 "THE FUNDAMENTALS OF KYOKUSHIN KARATE".
