Shihan Patrick Teo (5th Dan)

is the Singapore Branch Chief and President of World Karate Organization (WKO) Shinkyokushinkai Singapore. With over 30 years of coaching experience, his dedication has seen the rise of many promising young and late adulthood karate fighters comprising male and female students from all walks of life.

Shihan Patrick was awarded his 5th dan blackbelt in 2007. The grading was conducted in Japan and despite his age of 43 then, he had to prove himself against many younger men half his age from various countries (e.g. Japan, Russia, Brazil etc.) in a 50-man Kumite (full contact sparring). To date, Shihan Patrick is the only Singaporean to have competed and fought in 2 world open tournaments (held once every 4 years).

He now dedicates his efforts beyond individual accomplishments to advancing the art of Karate.

The good thing about Karate is that anyone can do it. Young or old, and it’s not necessary to be really fit to learn Karate. Also, the amount of effort you put into training translates into the skill you will develop. Karate training can be done anywhere, in or out of the dojo, so it depends on the individual’s commitment level to excel in it. Not only do we learn Karate as a martial art, values such as humility, respect, and discipline are also imparted.
