Back in 1962 when Yoshukai was founded, Mike Foster was a pupil training directly under Grandmaster Yamamoto. This young and big American national had disciplined himself and demonstrated high proficiency in Karate. Grandmaster Yamamoto highly recognized him and passed his expertise on to him.

In 1967, Shihan (Chief Instructor) Mike Foster was leading Yoshukai America as a director in Tampa, Florida. He traveled to Montreal, Canada and demonstrated Karate at the "International Karate Championship". It was the first Actual Karate demonstration overseas.
