  • I have known Hoosain Narker for the past 25 years. We have run parallel lives on opposite sides of the world, but during this time I have come to know him as a true professional and excellent leader! Kancho Hoosain Narker and I met and in Thailand in 2010, and I can describe him as a powerful, knowledgeable and spiritual martial artist who has dedicated his life to the solid development of the Ashihara style. Respect to you Shihan!
