Florentin Marinescu, President of the Romanian Martial Arts Federation, is the most important personality from hierarchical point of view regarding the organizational structure in which most Ashihara-Karate practitioners in Romania activate. A man whose life is identified with martial arts and who has been pleased to talk to AK MASTERS in an interview.
I had a conversation with Sensei Dan Mătuşea, 3rd Dan NIKO (New International Karate Organization) black belt, the coach of Romania Ashihara-Karate national team and the president of Ares Dojo DM Sports Club (Braşov). So, I present you a comprehensive interview made by AK MASTERS, in which I approached all the topical issues regarding his activity in nowadays Ashihara-Karate worldwide. The English version of this interview is shorter than the original one, in Romanian language. For complete experience, click here!

For some time now, I have noticed a communication pattern for the Ashihara-Karate movement worldwide. The members have begun to use frequently in their opinions the name of the organization they are part of, thing which didn’t happen in 2017, for example, when I launched AK MASTERS blog. From my point of view, there is a strain of muscles that is… unnecessary, in a sporting branch which has neither visibility nor importance in the eyes of state representatives, those who really have the power to tilts the balance to issues that can turn a trivial discipline into one of interest for long-term development. At least in Romania!
Recently, we initiated several discussions with representatives of Ashihara-Karate style, in the city of Pitești, among them being sensei Florin Neacșu, a particular “branch chief” in this entire national “landscape”, because he’s a member of Ashihara International Karate Organisation (AIKO) and most of Romanian dojos are affiliated to New International Karate Organization (NIKO).
