The start of the JKA's Instruction began in the Dadar Dojo, when Sasaki Shoichi Sensei was appointed the Chief Instructor for India by Nakayama Sensei. The year was 1978 and the culmination of the efforts of the current Head Instructor of the Dadar Dojo, who had in 1976 written to the JKA and received a reply asking for more details on the dojo.

The Dadar Dojo celebrates the completion of 40 years of the establishment of the JKA in India. Over the years the Dojo has been the training center where many of the JKA Headquarters Instructors have come and imparted training. Amongst them are Sasaki Yoshitaka Sensei, Mori Minoru Sensei, Sakata Sensei, Shina Sensei, Imamura Sensei, Imura Sensei, Ohmura Sensei among others.

It has also been the Honbu Dojo for many of India's National Champions and has also produced the only two karate contestants to have received the State Government's most Prestigious Sports Award called the Chattrapathi Shivaji Puraskar.

The Dadar Dojo having been one of the Pioneer Institutes teaching Shotokan Karate in the city of Mumbai honoured it's Chief Instructor, Sasaki Shoichi Sensei in 2002, with a Certificate of Appreciation issued by the Mayor Of Mumbai City
