Hope the below info will be a great help to you...

Shihan Francis Ramasamy was born in Penang, Malaysia in 1939. He has accumulated an impressive martial arts history, including training in Thai Muay Thai (Thai Boxing); Kodokan Judo 2nd Dan; Kendo 2nd Dan; and Shinden Fudo Ryu Kodachi Iai Shimpo 6th Dan.

In addition, Francis holds the rank of 7th Dan in Yoshinkan Aikido and has studied Aikido for over 30 years he has trained under many high ranking instructors including; Soke Shioda Sensei, Yagi Junchiro Sensei, Kushida Sensei, Takufumi Takeno Sensei and many others.

Francis rented various premises and even used his own house as a temporary Dojo until 1985, when he began renting his present Dojo. In addition to this Dojo situated in Penang, Francis also runs a Dojo in Kuala Lumpur. Francis has travelled to Japan on many occasions to study under Soke Gozo Shioda at the Yoshinkan Honbu. Francis has also taken part in Kangeiko (Winter Training) and trained with the Metropolitan Police in Tokyo. Francis feels that the repetitive uchikomi of Aikido reveals the truth of the ancient saying of the sage Lao Tse, "Read a book a hundred times, but do not read a hundred books at one time!".

Hello Bacquer Sensei,

We wish Mushinkan the best for this upcoming seminar. It's a shame that although Kuwait is quite near to Saudi Arabia, none from our side could come. We do hope that there will be a next time though, as our group being a Yoshinkan addict will benefit a lot from such an event.
