Kohinata Minoru is a college student at a college that is popular for its sports rather than academic orientation. Although he starts out as a gymnast alongside his friend, Nana, Minoru is bullied by the higher ranked gymnasts. One evening, a karate student at the college, Mutou Ryuuji, witnesses Minoru being bullied and comes to the rescue... but his intentions aren't to save Minoru, but to drag him into the world of karate. Minoru makes new friends and learns some of their dark pasts, including a shocking death that reveals motives for revenge.

I belive that in some parts the author lost the track, the final part feels rushed and not really completed. Even though, we are given a ending, not perfect, but possible!

I really think that, ...

I have gone through anime. webtoons, manga, western comics and hollywood and never do I really find a in-depth knowledgeable piece of media about the Kickboxing, muay thai, karate, mma world quite like Karate Shoukoushi aside from All rounder Meguru.

Not to mention this is like one of the only dozen or so manga with a realistic martial arts depiction.

I only ...
