I know a little karate. I got a chance to practice it bit at the Japan Karate Association, when my father was posted at the Myanmar Embassy in Tokyo. I started at the Nippon Karate Kyokai Ebitsu Hombu Dojo (that's the Japan Karate Association) around 1994 until 1997. Got as high as Shodan (that’s black belt for all you movie buff’s). And from there I never stopped until 1994 when I was on the Ministry of Education Team (university students were allowed to participate and compete at that level). Trained hard for 5 hours a day, for 4 months until one day before the event and managed to get a bronze medal that joined the other little parade of medals and trophies on mom and dad’s shelf of the accomplishments of the kids. As I am now in Singapore and really thinking of taking up some karate practice again, seriously. Just for the heck of it. Some sports would be great for me, I believe, I’m at an age where no one in the club would encourage me to enter any kumite tournaments (remember the kumite - Blood Sport), except for kata (the formalized exercise of techniques), and that would be something that I would love to do. And it would be a chance to make some friends. So if any of you who are reading this, happen to know anything about Shotokan Karate Clubs in Singapore.
Please send me some information.
