Daido Juku (Kudo) in NY
I have been emailing the Daido Juku org in Japan about starting a branch in the US. They have emailed me back and send they may send a representative on Nov.22. By NY, I assune they mean Manhattan or the surrounding area. Anyone else interested? Email them at DWHQ@daidojuku.com
Heres a copy of the email.
"Thank you for your reply. As we received 7 mails for

drop in on New York on 22nd November. How about talking an
establishment/restart of Kudo Daido Juku NY. If you can agree to this

Apareently a few people have been emailing them about a NY branch. Also I have been told there are some green belts still training in NY, they still haven't said where. Anyone know them?
Did you make a post about it over at kyokushin4life? You may get better info over there.
Nov 22 at 5:00 at the New Yorker hotel is where they plan to hold a meeting about opening up a branch of Daido Juku stateside.
Am I the only one excited about this? Are they any New York metro area kyokushin or judo types who have time to meet up? I hear Azuma is the one coming. He is the guy from the first half of this vid. http://youtube.com/watch?v=FSE9u1p7TW4
There is more info at this thread here. http://www.kyokushin4life.com/forums...ead.php?t=1787

Its O'Brien and I think I may have met you already Kempo Fist at Stonybrook. Ogrsx knows me from Enshin. I am the dark skinned guy. LI Guy, did you train with a guy named Brian at your BJJ place in Ronkonkoma, he knows me from Enshin too. I think I mu=ight have saw you at the sport Jiu Jitsu thing over the summer.
So no one cares about Daido Juku? Now I feel like a loser...
I care about it.
"AND GOD HAND SAYETH.LET THERE BE KUDO."
I know of a school here in Montreal that offers Kudo.I just have to find the time to get off my ass and go train there.
So you say Azuma might be going to NY himself?
Yes Azuma himself will be there as will be some sort of Heavyweight champion. Canuckyokushin, do you post over at http://www.kyokushin4life.com/forums/index.php ?
