ERIC KHOO

Mr Eric Khoo began his Taekwon-do education in 1985 under the tutelage of Grandmaster Yeow Cheng Watt. Since then, he has obtained a 5th Degree Blackbelt in Taekwon-do and a 2nd Degree Blackbelt in Hapkido under the World Kido Federation in South Korea. Due to an incident in 2008 whereby his sister was involved in a traumatic mugging involving bladed weapons, Eric was spurred to seriously investigate the aspects of personal safety and self preservation.  It has also caused him to recognize the seriousness of knife attacks. Currently, apart from teaching and training in Taekwon-do, he has developed an interest in other martial arts systems that emphasize weapons and the bladed culture.

Mr Joshua Rayan is an avid practitioner of martial arts. As one who has faced the threat of a machete in an attempted robbery, Joshua knows the dangers and pervasiveness of street crime and has therefore endeavored to train in order to protect himself and his loved ones. He is devoted to training anyone interested to know more as he believes everyone should know some form of self defense in this day and age. He has assisted as a trainer in a number of our ARM Self Defense and SEN Master programs.
