I’ve collaborated until now with five international organizations: NIKO (New International Karate Organization), AIKO (Ashihara International Karate Organization), AKI (Ashihara Karate International), TSU (Tsu Shin Gen International Budo Association), and IAKA (International Association of Karate Ashiharakyokai).

But which form of organization is better?

Din punct de vedere al managementului, primele patru sunt conduse de un lider (având titulatura de „kancho”, „shihan”, „kaicho” sau „soke”), iar un comitet tehnic ia deciziile în cazul ultimei. Dar care formă de organizare este mai bună?

It’s no surprise that this blog, ignored by the people who depend on many decision-making issues, is very useful. I have no doubts, especially since I felt myself included among “some websites being operated on the Internet by karate groups in countries outside Japan, using the name Ashihara, and post information that seems to confuse NIKO with other groups” (the entire message of Hidenori Ashihara can be read here).
