Then in 1972, Mas Oyama sent another of his Kyokushin chief instructors from Tokyo, Soshi - Saiko Shihan Yasuhiko Oyama (brother of Soshu Shigeru Oyama), to Birmingham, Alabama, to expand the growth of the Kyokushin style world wide. In 1985 the World Oyama Karate Organization was founded as an independent organization. It is directed by Founder Soshu Shigeru Oyama and Founder Soshi Saiko Shihan Yasuhiko Oyama. Over 150 official World Oyama Karate dojos are established in 19 countries.
