John Teramoto, president of SKA's Black Belt Council, spent some years as Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Kansas and as Curator of Asian Art at the Spencer Museum of Art. 

During his tenure at K.U., Dr. Teramoto introduced members of KC Shotokan to the lectures and instruction of Fukushima Keido Roshi, Chief Abbot of the Tofukuji Zen Sect in Kyoto, Japan. 

Fukushima Roshi began visiting the United States and the Spencer Museum in 1989.  There he has presented an annual calligraphy demonstration and  lecture and has given instruction in Zen Sitting.

Here you will find several links to notes from Fukushima Roshi's lectures and other teaching.
