At my karate club people call me Sensei, and my friends just call me Richard.


PhD program here I come! 博士号プログラムに合格しました!

Well, a new life's learning chapter starts from April as I've been accepted into the Peace & Conflict Studies PhD program in the Graduate School of Global Studies at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies!

My dissertation will be on human rights education (HRE), which is also part of international education studies. I've been studying HRE for 2 years now. It is actually similar to global karate studies because both have spread worldwide since the end of WW2 and both promote equality through education.

Next month I will successfully graduate with a M.A. in Global Studies from the Graduate Program in Global Studies  at Sophia University in Tokyo.
Yeah, done!
