Attended Jinseikan Dinner 2009 on 30th December at Yong Chun Yuan Restaurant. Met up with some fellow karate-kas that have lost touch for many many years.
In the photograph above: On the extreme left is Sensei Seah Kwang Soon from SKA, next to his left is Shihan Francis Hong from ZSR, to his further left and on my left is Shihan Maikawa, then Shihan Wong Tuang Seng, Shihan Horikochi (?), Shihan Michael Wong from Shotokan.
Shihan Maikawa was the National Coach in Singapore during the 70s. I was at one time training under him when I was in the Singapore Karate Team then. Presently, he holds a 8th Dan qualification in JKF Gojukai.
Both Shihan Maikawa and Shihan Horikochi accepted to be KUS's Technical Advisors. We are proud to have them with us on our developemental path.
