He is a Buddhist Bodhisattva Warrior Monk in the Chen Yen Mikkyo Mi Tsung sect and a senior technical advisor for the Wu Hsin Tao.
Hayashi began karate training in 1968 at the International School of Judo and Karate in New Jersey. The Isshin Kempo Association grew into one of the largest karate organizations on the East coast in the 1970s. Goedecke is also an Adjunct Lecturer in Physical Education at Drew University where he has taught karate since 1984.
