Kendo Club Alumni Shoji Teramoto ('98, Osaka Law Enforcement) won the 55th All Japan Kendo Championship Series on November 3rd, 2007. His victory was a first in a series of recent accomplishments from our alumni. In November 2008, Daisuke Wako ('00, Hokkaido Law Enforcement) became the runner-up champion at the 56th All Japan Kendo Championship Series.
Like Teramoto and Wako, many of our alumni continue to develop their kendo skills after graduation by following a career in law enforcement. However, many others also choose a variety of other professions including education and business.
One thing that can be said about all alumni, however, is that very few stop training Kendo after graduation. Instead, most develop an even greater love for the sport, some returning home to teach at their local dojo, while others continuing their training while perusing various careers.
Main Employers of the Class of 2008:
Finding employment after graduation demands strong intrapersonal skills, the kind taught at Budo University. Our alumni, working at the forefront of society, open up doors for future alumni of the Kendo Club.
