He stayed in Japan for two and a half years, studying Aikido, teaching English, and eventually working in corporate Japan for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. He returned to Japan two years later for an internship with Nissan Motors as part of his MBA in International Business. After completing his MBA in 2001, he moved to Minnesota to work for Honeywell in Human Resources and joined the Minnesota Ki Society. Tarry sensei is an Assistant Ki Lecturer and Assistant Examiner and holds the rank of Sandan (3rd Degree Blackbelt) in Shinshin Toitsu Aikido and Chuden in Shinshin Toitsu Do (Ki Development).
