In 1997 he established his own association (Kyokai) and after years of research on Koryu Bujutsu, in January 2004 Dr. Dorbayani's request to establish his own system was granted and he named his style ‘KOJIDO TODI-JUTSU 固持道唐手術- The Way of Persistence in Unarmed Martial Arts’ and formed 'The Academy of Scientific Martial Arts' as a division to Kojido's organization, inviting instructors to provide education on Science of Martial Anatomy, Martial Physiology, Martial Philosophy as well as Japanese-Okinawan Culture and Language.
