In 1953 Oyama opened his own dojo in Tokyo, and through now travelled extensively around Japan and other countries as well as the United States. He developed his own curriculum which had a reputation as a tricky, practical sort of firm hitting and realistic karate. The reputation of the dojo grew, and pupils rapidly started coming from across Japan and further afield to train with Oyama. At last in 1964 he moved his dojo right into a refurbished structure, and formally founded the "International Karate Organization Kyojushinkaikan", and was thus able to arrange the many faculties which by then taught kyokushinkai.
