Profile:

I started Judo at the age of 9, and started Karate at the age of 16.  After I graduated St. Thomas University, Japan, I went to America to teach Karate.  I was teaching Karate at U.S Army, at Alaska University, at High School and at my Dojo.  At the day time, I was studying at Alaska University.

I was a Kumite Champion in Alaska State in 1981.  After 3 years and a half, I went back to Japan.  I became a student at St. Thomas University Japan again, and I have got English Teacher’s License for high school and junior high school in 1985.

When I was 35 years old, I became All Japan Karate Kata champion in Tokyo Japan ‘Nippon Budokan’ in 1991.  After I became famous by this championship, I have got a job at Ashiya International High School as an English teacher in 1992.

During I teach English, at the same time I studied at Ashiya University Graduate School and I have got the M.A. in Education in 1998 at the age of 45.

Since I became a teacher of this high school, I made karate club at high school, Junior high school and Ashiya University.

I write articles to Karate magazines “monthly magazine JKFan” in Japan, “Black Belt” in the U.S., and “TRADITIONAL KARATE” in England.

In 2010, Ashiya University in Japan sent me to ‘Sakura Budo Science Vienna’ in Austria to teach Japanese Budo, Karate, Judo, Kendo, Iaido etc.
