I agree...why does he need a title?
It's for the contact page on the web site--so people who don't know that they need to contact some guy named Tom can contact him nonetheless.
I kind of like "Kyucho" but it's no more helpful than just using "Tom". If you know what it means you're most likely not a kyu anymore. Which leads me back to something like "Dean of Junior Students". Or perhaps, "Kyucho / head of the junior-ranked students".
To put the problem more fully, I have four people listed on the contact page:
- One of two chief instructors;
- The treasurer who also keeps the mailing list up to date;
- The Tom;
- and Your humble web master.
Currently they are listed as:
- n n Sensei;
- n n Treasurer & Registrar;
- n n Kyu master;
- n n Web kohai.
As you can see, the situation is quite a mess.
