Happy Holidays – No Party This Year

The Safety of our Students and Families is paramount to us, and while we can limit and control  students interaction in a class setting, it is impossible (and less than desirable) to do so in a party setting.  For this reason, the Soengkono World Class Martial Arts...

Testimonials

“Teacher to the Teacher”

I have had the devastating misfortune, the esteemed honor, and the haunting tragedy, of meeting many people who walk the path of life and death in this conflict-ridden world of ours. However, upon the fated occasion of meeting others amid the scenario of training I became remarkably aware of a person who by his gentle gaze and humble benevolence, exuded strength beyond that which I have ever experienced in any of my international moments. By chance our meeting had happened, or was it by fate, I was to embrace a learning experience beyond my prior remembrances? While in the presence of this venerated colleague I became clearly and respectfully aware that I had the honor of meeting in my life, one of the worlds, greatest disciples of combative technique understanding.

My skills and techniques that I displayed in the presence of this unassuming and gentle man were absorbed, my words and thoughts were considered, and amid his vast background of experience based knowledge, he shared moments with me that I shall never forget… His words impacted my thoughts while the silence between us was deafening with long-ago reflections.

After having written five books about the experiences of my life, and obtained two doctorate degrees, survived the worlds war zones, taught the officers of over sixty nations, I had suddenly and respectfully become the student of the humble, kind, and combatively insightful, Grand Master Song.

May his life be long, because he has so very much to contribute to so many…

“One Man’s Opinion”, July 13, 2006

A martial arts grand master in Thunder Bay who is also truly world class. He is the inspirational leader of the Soengkono World Class Martial Arts School…his credentials are impressive: 9th Dan Grandmaster in Tae Kwon Do, 6th degree black belt in Aikido and Jujutsu from Japan, a Grand Master in Indonesian Pencak Silat, was Combat Instructor to the Indonesian Army; SWAT and Riot Police, but it’s his approach and attitude in the classroom and that of his instructors…that provide an experience that is truly moving. He preaches the gospel of courtesy, respect, perseverance, mental focus and an “I can” attitude. His approach toward the teaching of Martial Arts combined with Life Skills could serve as a lesson that every student in Lakehead’s Faculty of Education should attend. We are most fortunate to have him here in Thunder Bay.
