After retiring from the corporate world, he devotes himself to teaching various people with different backgrounds, not only Karate but professional sports athletes, coaches, university and high school students, as well as business people. The age of the students varies from 6 to 75 and he teaches within and outside Japan by exercising his own evolutionary teaching method, Ki.
Ushiro Sensei’s mastery of ki, as expressed through his karate, is at a level rarely seen in the world of martial arts. He is a highly sought-after instructor in Japan and author of several books on martial arts. His second book, Karate and Ki, has recently been released in an English version.
