I received your book Hoosain sensei, and I really enjoyed it. There are many similarities between us... I call it being a Karate bum.. It read really well. It reminds me a bit of Mike Clark's book and CW Nicol's  "Moving Zen"  Thank you for sending it to me

Well my friend, it was indeed a pleasure to get your awesome book. I enjoyed the DVD as well. You and your students are incredible in the proper execution of technique.

Osu Hoosain-san, I finished your book very good. I really enjoyed it. I would like to read something about your sabaki methods to compare with my training and also your rise to head your group (Ashihara International). I think that would be a good read.  Perhaps you already have those books out. Let me know. I look forward to seeing you again soon. OSU!

Kind Regards,

Osu Hoosain,
Your book was a joy and reflects the universal family attitude within karate. Always willing to help each other regardless of any other factor.
The DVDs were most interesting. I learned a lot about the Ashihara approach. It appears to be very close to karate's origins. Including throws which have often faded into history within other systems.
