"Kihon (Basics) and Kata (formal exercise/pattern) are where the secrets are! Good Karate is forged in Kihon and the understanding of ones own limitations. At the same time understanding there are limitiless possibilities one can achieve. All this through the honest and natural practice of Kihon, Kumite and Kata, as 'shapeless' Karate, the fundamentals of Shotokan Karate-do."
Ash has received instruction from Julius George Sensei, Yahara Sensei, Van Weenen Sensei, Yoshikazu Sumi Sensei, Jan Knobel Sensei and, more recently Richard Amos Sensei and Shihan Hidetaka Narumi and Scott Langley Sensei.
Ash has also been accepted as a fellow of the International Shotokan-ryu Karate do Shihankai in the interest of preserving Traditional Shotokan Karate.
