Vince Choo

Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia



Vince has been involved in martial arts since 1980, starting with Shaolin Nam Pai Chuan at the famed Chin Woo school of Malaysia, then after moving to the UK, he continued his martial arts training in Shotokan karate. During this time he also explored Shorinji Kempo, and other schools of karate, including Shito-Ryu, Goju-Kai and Ishin-Ryu. During the summer breaks, he learned a little aikido but found that he missed competition which he pursued and earned a place in Karate Association of Hawaii’s team. Representing K.A.H., he competed on the A.A.U. West Coast circuit as well as regional and state level competitions earning the podium on several occassions.


Vince also worked pro-bono for the Boys and Girls Club of America in Oakland, an outreach program for underprivileged kids in California. In addition to his educational  responsibilities he founded an accredited karate program the University of San Francisco Karate Club in 1991 when he was an undergraduate there. His interest in physical education was peaked when he returned to Malaysia only to find his martial arts students were unable to keep up with the physical demands so he started to teach a separate physical conditioning program which has since been adopted and spread to East Malaysia and as far as Osaka, Japan.
