  • Dear Sensei Soon. It has been many years since I had to give up my many hours of training in order to complete my studies at medical school, and even more years after we first met in 1989. I have never had the chance to say THANK YOU for playing such a big role in my growing up – and to my Karate Academy family who played a huge role in creating the best I can be! Till we meet again!
