2012-until now Member of JKC Agility Central Committee
I met agility in 1993, and started promoting it wanting to spread it all over Japan. At the same time, I have invited many judges and handlers from Europe and conducted seminars in order to
improve the level of agility in Japan. I still continue to be an active handler and keep challenging.
I participated with my border collie Queen Bee at the first Border Collie Classic in 2006 in The Netherlands, and I am honored to judge at the BCC at its 10 year anniversary.
