Obviously not all of us will have a clear cut vision of what we want to achieve in the long run but for those of us that do please share your thoughts. I have admittedly not spoken about this to many others. My long term goal is to open up my own school and get a foundation of students before I retire from the department. Initially I was just considering a Kyokushin school - however as luck would have it I bumped into some folks who opened my eyes to something more. I made contact with the main US representative who was very approachable and supportive, and hopefully before 2020 I can bring this to fruition. My goal is to open up an affiliated club of the Kudo International Federation and get Daido Juku Kudo on the East Coast of the US, specifically Pennsylvania. It's a lofty goal but I think definitely achievable.
