A part of his story seems like a myth out of kung fu movie or McDojo's sensei tale What I found really strange about this story is that he started doing karate at 6 years old in 1952??? And there was karate's gym around his neighborhood. (Karate gym near his house? Did he live near Japan's department store? Because that was the only place karate's gym would be during that time... Oh wait! Japan was still being rebuilt! They couldn't set up a mall) Also, you guys realize how nationalistic Thai people were back 7 years just after Japan invaded Thailand? Only super rich parents who think Moreover, a Chinese teaching "Karate" in "Thailand" Oh dear... But wait, karate was still not properly introduced in Thailand in 1952! It would be after the success of Thai Judo team in 1965 in the first ASEAN game, that leads to the demonstration of karate in front of the Thai prince and the beginning of the popularity of Japanese drama. ... So what's the purpose of this whole karate thing? I guess it is about making himself sound much more legitimate in front of all Murican McDojo fanatics. In the era that was dominated by McDojo this is probably the best way to legitimize yourself.
