My sincere thank you to everyone that attended the event, helped to spread the word and to those who helped to organize and manage the seminar. I am truly grateful!
We had 41 total participants. Jukucho Azuma was very pleased at the number of attendees and their skill level. Personally I was delighted to see the different schools and styles represented. We had participants from kyokushin, JuJitsu, Judo, Tang Soo Do, Taekwondo, MMA, traditional Karate and Aikido.
It was a lifetime experience learning from the Great Sensei Jukucho Takashi Azuma. Ito Sensei, Horikoshi Sensei and Kato Sensei were awesome and extremely helpful to everyone. Horikoshi Sensei and Kato Sensei spent a great deal of time with me helping me to understand my obligations and answered many question relative to Kudo.
Kudo, Michigan USA is now an Official International Branch of the Kudo International Federation. As Branch Chief it is my primary responsibility to protect the integrity and excellent reputation of Kudo Daido Juku and to spread Kudo through Training, Friendship and Cooperation. It’s my duty to assist anyone interested in establishing Kudo in their area as a Branch Dojo or a club working under an existing Branch. Please don’t hesitate to contact me. Currently there are two Branches in the US, Ito Sensei in L.A and us here in Michigan. I understand that there is another coming on board soon.
Thank’s to all!Dan Kendall Branch Chief
