Left: Choo Kah wah, 1973 SEAP Games Gold, Open Category
Right: Tan Sin Aun, SJC President, SEAP Games Gold 1971 & 1973.

Singapore Judo made History in the SEAP Games of 1973 when Mr Choo Kah Wah (Left), a light weight competitor, proved that this superior technique was unmatched by his heavier opponents. That year, he took home the Open Category Gold. 

Yesterday, Mr Choo stepped onto the mats after a 30+ year break. Still fighting fit and all ready to get back into fighting shape. These gentlemen are truly roles models.

Mr Tan Sin Aun Conferred Rank of 6th Dan!

SJC President Mr Tan Sin Aun was conferred the rank of Roku Dan (the 6th Dan) by the Singapore Judo Federation last week. Mr Tan joins the rank of only a handful of senior Judo players in Singapore and the region, who dawns the red and white belt.

A recap of Mr Tan's Judo Journey:
The 2 time SEAP Games (former SEA Games) Gold medalist is arguably one of the most successful Judokas in Singapore's relatively short Judo history, clinching the coverted titles in 1971 and 1973. He later gave back to the Judo community by taking on the coaching role in SJC. Between 1985 to 1992, Mr Tan was Singapore's Judo National Coach and produced an astounding 4 Gold, 2 Silver and 4 Bonze Medals at the SEAP/SEA Games. In recognition of his contribution to the Sport, the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) presented him an Award of Merit in 1973 and he was promoted to the rank of 5th Dan in 1992 by the International Judo Federation (IJF). His stellar Judo career has been an inspiration for many young Judoka and his records in both coaching and competition remains unbeaten even till this day. Today, the 66-year-old can still be seen delivering the weekly classes at the Singapore Judo Club Dojo and there is hardly any sign of him slowing down.

The members of SJC congratulates Mr Tan on his well deserved promotion and we look forward to his guidance for many years to come.
