Instructors in Asia Pacific
Tomohiro Susa

Instructor - Wakayama City, Japan

I started learning Kung Fu in April, 2000 in New Zealand when I was 22 years old. I went to New Zealand to study English and one of my teachers trained at NPC and she took me to the training hall.


I liked watching Chinese action movie like Jacky Chan when I was a kid. I was interested in Chinese Martial Arts but it is not popular in Japan because we already have many kinds of Japanese martial arts here, such as Karate, Judo, Kendo, Aikido, Iaido, Kyudo, Nihonkenpo, Shorinjikenpo, etc.


I had no experience for any martial arts before in Japan, just practice Judo in high school PE class. So I was nervous at the first class but people are friendly, atmosphere is good and skills are amazing. The more I have trained, I found out more I need to learn and I wanted to learn.


I have trained about 20 years and learned much more than just how to fight. I know how to move  my body more efficiently with chi to be strong, fast and stable for a long time like a marathon. So physical work like agriculture to help my dad easily. I learned chi gung, so when I am tired I can recover quicker from job stress and illness.


Teaching NPC has helped me to think and teach students more logically, to help them understand better.


I like NPC people, knowledge, skills, system, history, and more. The way of thinking as a martial artist is making my life richer and deeper and I am always thinking learn always and assume nothing. I’ve really enjoyed training under Sifu Lai and other seniors and have been lucky enough to travel the world to train with many other students.


I’d like to share my experience and knowledge with more people in Japan. So I opened my center in Wakayama in 2003. It’s not easy to keep teaching in a different country, with a different culture, different society to where I learned in New Zealand. But I believe a thing of real worth is survived and accepted anywhere, anytime in the world.
