I'm not planning my Japan trip yet. I have a 3rd kyu student who is migrating to Indonesia for a few years and would like to continue training in Shodokan and continue at his rank without having to restart at white belt somewhere else. I can inform him of the Japan option, but he will probably have to make periodic visits instead of attending regular training sessions. If there are no Shodokan schools there the only option will be to train at another style or do another art. I don't know if he'll be up to starting a Shodokan study group there.
John: What is "Tarung Derajat"? Sounds nasty.
Thanks for the help so far folks.
