Our history & perspective about SHOTOKAN KARATE.
We started teaching Karate in early 1990, in Taman Tasek Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. At that time our training comprised of Shotokan Karate, Shito-ryu Karate, Kempo Karate, Kenjutsu Karate, Kyokushin Karate, Wado-Ryu Karate, Budokan Karate & Gojo-Ryu Karate.
Instructors & Black belts came from many KARATE styles locally and some were from overseas. Combination & exchange of cultural or techniques were our arsenal those days. Our instructors & students worked independently & voluntarily; no one were above anyone except respect, knowledge & skills.
In the year 2000 up to year 2015, we trained in Japan Club Kuala Lumpur & few other Dojos around Kuala Lumpur. We participated in several invitational tournament starting from year 1994 up to now.
Dr.S.Suhaizy the Chief Instructor for this group, had trained under various local, United Kingdom & Japanese Instructors focus on Shotokan Training, Shito-ryu Training & other styles. He had attended countless international seminars conducted by esteem Grandmasters of Karate worldwide.
