Shihan officiated at the 10th All Japan Championships where Ninomiya Shihan became the champion. Being impressed by his performance, and with Kancho knowing of his determined attitude, he was invited to the Ashihara Honbu dojo whereafter he switched to Ashihara Kaikan. He, together with Sensei Weilgama of Sri Lanka, was the first foreign dojo to become members of the NIKO. He visited Japan on a regular basis and was the highest graded foreigner under Kancho Hideyuki Ashihara.
After many years of hard work and dedication, Ashihara
Karate has spread all over India with more than 100 dojo in most states
with an estimated membership of 30 000. Classes are also conducted in many
states for members of the Police, Army and other active uniformed services.
Apart from all this, there are also special classes especially geared for
the physically handicapped and the blind.
