I went to support Hideyuki Watanabe as he fights his way up the ranks in the Eastern Japan newcomer's tournament. He just won his second fight of the tournament, and will fight again in early July. His older brother is Takayuki Watanabe who I worked with briefly at Caricatures-Japan before he left to go freelance. I got to spend the day hanging out with Takanabe and Tanaka, which is always fun. You can see some photos from the event ,and his great art, at his blog at http://takanabe1130.blogspot.com/ Check it out!

While Japanese teachers are in charge of teacher grammar from the textbook, I'm in charge on teaching the conversation based program.
For most of the classes I teach, I team teach with one of two foreigners from my company. I work with Chris Nash two days a week, and once a week with Shairose Kara.
In this picture taken after the entrance ceremony, you can see both Chris, Shai, and Mr. Yamaguchi, who is the head of the English department.
