The senpai/kohai system is very important in kyokushin. Listed below are our shodan and brown belts. Some are currently undergoing attachment with Shihan Michael in preparation for their upcoming shodan test. They differ from the senpais from other martial arts and especially other ‘new’ kyokushin in Malaysia in that to reach this level:

  • they have studied Kyokushin for a duration no lesser than 5 years.
  • they have more than 200 accumulated kumite grading rounds under their belt
  • they compete in every single local kyokushin tournament (this is excluding other martial art tournaments)
  • they have the ability to conduct a proper Kyokushin class (as close as possible to the classes in Japan); yes! even the teenagers
  • loyal
  • respectful
  • mature in mindset
