Message from Kancho & Nicu Dascalu

To All NIKO Branch Chiefs:

I am addressing this message to all NIKO Branch Chiefs to personally invite you to consider participating in the
2016 Ashihara Karate Wold Championship to be held between November 9 and 13 in Brasov, Romania.

This is a unique opportunity to take part in the evolution of our competition system.
A new set of rules will be applied and the objective for these changes is the development of Ashihara Karate.

This is a huge challenge for all of us, however I strongly believe this is the time to do it.
We are all in different countries speak different languages, however we have the same objective: the progress of our organization.

Mr. Nicolae Dascalu took the responsibility for organizing the 2016 World Championship in Romania.

I want to express my most sincere appreciation to all NIKO Branch Chiefs who over the past years have supported our international events: training camps and tournaments.
I invite you to come and challenge yourself, by participating in the 2016 Ashihara Karate World Championship.

Thank you for your continuing support and hope to see you in Romania!

Sincerely, OSU!

Kancho Hidenori Ashihara
Director, New International Karate Organization Ashihara Kaikan
