Master Khoo AKA "The Red Dragon" was the one that coached and gave me my ISKA Level 1 cert. (you can read the old post here). Master Khoo is an accomplished martial artist in Tae Kwon Do (ITF) and considered one of the few well known Chinese Kickboxers in Malaysia that fights in both Sanda & Muay Thai circuit, having many fighting experience himself, he now runs the TNT Kickboxing in KL, is the assistant national Wushu Sanshou coach of the Malaysian Wushu Federation & is also Malaysia's ISKA representative.
TNT Kickboxing situated at 9-1, Jalan 26A/70A, Desa Sri Hartamas, 50480 KL, Malaysia. TNT Kickboxing is a sizable gym complete with punching bags, a boxing ring & 2 training areas, shower room, a TV area and also office.
But TNT Kickboxing isn't a gym that is just big and looks good, it is a gym that has many great accomplishment.
For one thing, this is one of the training ground of the Malaysian National Sanda team (During the time of FightBah's visit, we were actually offered to train with the national Sanda team but time did not permit as we had other matters to attend to, but to think that a national team would pick this gym as training ground says alot in itself). In fact Master Khoo is currently coaching the Malaysian Sanda team at Turkey.
One of the instructor Mr. Steven himself a national Sanda champion of 2 weight categories for 2 years. He was running the class during our visit and it was an enjoyable experience!
TNT Kickboxing also produced the 1st Malaysian female MMA fighter in the form of Miss Ella Tang that competed in the MARTIAL COMBAT promotion at Singapore.
There are many qualified fighters and coaches in this gym and Master Khoo is a well respected man among the local fight scenes. At age 38, he just finished a fight last year May 2010 at Genting beating his Japanese opponent at a Sanda vs Muay Thai competition.

FightBah hope had a great time training here and we hope to drop by TNT Kickboxing gym again in the future to join their advance class.
