Dr Foo Ong Pin departed at 1.40am on 30th June 2008 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. Deepest Condolences to Mrs Foo and her 2 daughters

A tribute from Dr Leong KW:

Age did not deter his venture into the world of Aikido in his late 50s. Though I have known him to be my senior in school (Methodist Boys' School KL) and a senior paediatrician in Subang Jaya Medical Centre, I did not really get to know him until he stepped into our dojo at Jln. Scott, Brickfields to learn aikido 4 years ago.

He was a model student, starting from scratch, arduously learning to back fall, front roll and eventually to do break fall from a height. He took everything in his stride, occasionally even 'testing' me with great resistance to see if what I had taught him would work and laughed away in submission as I subdued him with a firm lock. He tried hard to do the techniques the way I taught him.

As an outstanding individual in society, he did not ask to be treated different. He was tested like any other member and rose through the ranks by his own determination and effort to 1st kyu. He had no hesitation in calling me (his junior in school and in the medical profession) his Sensei. In fact when I thanked him for paying for my supper one night, he told me it was his privilege to treat his instructor! He was due to be graded for 1st degree black belt in Aikido this 26th July.

As his love for Aikido deepened, he started looking at ways to help the MAA. He suggested a House Committee to manage the HQ dojo ahd he agreed to head it. He offered to put up horizontal bars across the windows for the safety of the members. He was already exploring on fund-raising projects for our 15th Anniversary celebrations next year. But alas, the MAA has prematurely lost a warrior.

I mourn the loss of my good student and friend. May the friendship and spirit of Aikido accompany and protect him in his journey into the next life. My deepest condolences goes to Mrs Foo and her 2 daughters.

Expand / Hide2008.03.27Aikido Newsletter - a Message from our Editor

Hello fellow aikidokas.

 

I am Simon from Australia. You may have enjoyed throwing me around sometime at the HQ dojo or during a seminar.

 

As you may have heard, I am putting together a newsletter for our club.

I thought I would put out the word to see if anybody has anything they would like to contribute.

 

The newsletter is a collaborative effort. It should represent our views.

So, of course, I am welcome to any contributions you may like to be included.

(Also, your contributions help by allowing me to do less work. Is not the way of aikido to carry out an action without using a lot of force?)

 

I don’t have a clear idea about the layout of the newsletter yet.

But for the moment, I wonder if:

 

Maybe you have an interesting story about aikido?

Maybe you have had some experience where aikido helped you?

Maybe you can recommend particular aspects of aikido philosophy I could include?

For instance, maybe you know of a particular interesting written statement about aikido practice?

 

I would also like to include a snapshot of some of our members.

If you would like to be included in this gallery of talent maybe you could email me telling me your name, age (optional), what you do for work/study and MOST IMPORTANTLY why you enjoy wearing white pajamas, perspiring a lot and being thrown around by people you had never met before you started training.

Could you please also attach a scanned photo when you send me this information. I would appreciate that.

 

If you want to contact me with any particular ideas you can email me on sapollock1111@yahoo.com.au, phone me on 017 341 6287 or hang around the HQ dojo and force me to listen to your idea while pinning me down on the mat with an arm lock.

 

Hope to hear from at least some of you.

 

Happy training!

 

Simon Pollock
