FIRST AIKO DOJO IN IRAN OPENS!
There are several requests for the Ashihara International Karate Organization every week and for our style it is important that we can guarantee reliable and serious Dojos for our future.
It is not easy to check all applications for reliability because of the great variety that modern full contact karate has.
In this case we have opted for a serious partner in the person of Meysam Ghasemi who is based in Rast, capital city or Gilan Province, Iran.
Sensei Meysam Ghasemi has experience in full contact competitions like Seidokaikan, Kyokushin, DaidoJuku and Shinkyokushin and runs his own Dojo since 2008.
He is holder of Dangrades in Goju Ryu (Kancho Omoto) and Kyokushin (Kancho Iwashita).
We will strongly support Sensei Ghasemi in his development of Ashihara International Karate in Iran.
A warm welcome to our new Branch in Iran,
Dave Jonkers Shihan , March 2018
