Master's Thesis Proposal 修論プロポーザル

It's been an extremely busy 4 weeks finishing the second of four terms towards my masters in Sophia University's Graduate Program in Global Studies. But I'm here to report things are going well as I passed my graduation thesis proposal which is on the 'Globalization of Karate from a Japan perspective'.


Of course it was a little nerve wracking to present in front of the program's professors during the same time as final papers were due, but the overall reaction was good and my few jokes seemed to go over well (i.e. karate can be pronounced as Japanese ka-la-te, American ka-rah-ee, or like the British ka-ra...Teah.)


Wish me luck as now the research and writing begins... to 100 pages. Due in December.
