However, the foreigner was refused entry by a teacher who did not have a disciple, and after a week of petition for introduction, he was finally allowed to become a disciple. Since then, he has been devoting himself to practicing Chinese martial arts. In 1947, with the permission of Dr. Wang Mukai, he founded the Taiki Seikenpo (Taikiken) and returned to Japan.
