Update for those interested, here is a post from the Daidojuku liason officer/foreign branch conflict resolutionist/translator for Azuma Jukucho and Daidojuku
"His visit to NYC is mainly informational. Jukucho had received quite a few emails from martial arts students in New York who were interested in learning more about Daidojuku and Kudo. As some of you may already know from emails, Columbia is holding a Kudo National Tournament. Since he would be traveling through the area he thought it would be a great opportunity to stop by New York City and meet those who were interested in our system. He will be traveling with several senpai, including Igarashi senpai who placed 2nd in the 2005 World Tournament."
They are also looking for a matted area to do a seminar. Anyone in Manhattan area know a good place? They may also have Daido Juku goods avaialable so for those of you looking for the spacehelmets, now is your chance!
Columbia...like the university?
hmm they are coming to NYC eh? well seeing how america likes knockdown karate/mma im guessing by the time im 30 enough schools will have spread to the west coast...but thats a big maybe.
The Columbia visit is to Columbia the country. So Kudo is spreading everywhere. It is still looking like Nov. 21st at the New Yorker hotel in Manhattan.
Tell your friends!!
Kudo needs to make its way westward across the U.S. so i can do it without having to move.
Here is full information.

I was just going to post that!
I would like to check it out also. is there anything definite besides nov 22 at 5:00? i guess we all show up at the hotel . i was going to join kyokushin nyc but if this comes to town i might join , gotta see the details does anyone know about this kyokushin nyc school or about siedo juko at 23 street . i was doing american kenpo but school shut down so looking at kyokushin
The new date is Nov. 21st at 7:PM. I would checkout any of the Kyokushin schools in Manhattan if I were you. The Kyoksuhin school in Manhattan I am pretty sure is IKO1. There are a few other knockdown schools. World Oyama seems to be big in the NYC area too. go to the karate section of www.martialartsny.com and you can see listings for all different kinds of schools.
But I would defietly go to this seminar. And if they do open a NYC branch you should train there without a doubt. You have seen the youtube clips right?
Oh yeah, Welcome to Bullshido.
