The field of Martial Arts is a unique discipline on its own, created by the combined wisdom and teachings that have been provided to us by generations of passed on research and practice. Henceforth, we are now equipped to take on a even more detailed approach to the study of this field, unprecedented. We understand that Martial Arts are not knowledge alone, but a very systematic discipline and a way of life that deserves the utmost respect and attention for detail.
Our academic approach acknowledges this fact and makes use of the academic fields that are intrinsically related; such as sports science, management and business fundamentals to name a few, in order to bridge the existing gaps between the educational foundations of Academia and the hands on approach of most Martial Arts Schools. Among our latest initiatives is the collaboration with the International Universities Association of Physical Culture and Sports along with Malaysian Martial Arts Foundation. These partnerships ensure the long lasting commitment and the success of our programs.
Together, along with all the graduates and practitioners, this dedication and support is essential to the future accomplishments of IPSCA. Our plans include the inauguration of a new campus with full recognition by the government to support the field of Martial Arts as a full-fledged academic field of study. Martial Artists themselves therefore need to demonstrate unity in our perseverance in order to achieve this important acknowledgment.
I hope that with the success of all our graduates today, we will be able to attract more martial arts practitioners to attend courses and programs, in the continuous effort to produce skilled and competent individuals. Collectively, we will be able to create a bright future while documenting the vivid history of martial arts,both methodically and meritoriously.
