Sensei V.A. Najeem

" The Only secret  of  traditional karate lies in understanding of the technique, and hard training "

The eldest of the three brothers who brought Shorin-ryu Seibukan to the UAE, Sensei Najeem was the first of them to enroll for Karate classes. Soon after that, he realised the benefits this wonderful art would offer to his younger brothers Jaleel and Iqbal. 

Very few people know of Sensei Najeem as a qualified lawyer. Well, black and white has been the story of his life. But not in law. So influential was Karate in his life that he gave up his white clothes and black lawyers’ gown and chose to spend his life wearing the white GI and black belt.

Alongside his brothers, Sensei Najeem continues to impart his knowledge and wisdom upon his students, and maintains his own training. Together, him and his brothers have travelled far and wide to continuously better themselves. With them, he has travelled to various countries around the world to attend tournaments and training seminars, including:

Cheif Examiner of I.S.S.
Karate-Do UAE. 
5th Dan Karate & 
3rd  Dan Kobudo
2nd  Dan Aikido

•    India (home)
•    Malaysia
•    Germany
•    USA
•    Okinawa, Japan

His superiors applaud him, his piers admire him, and his students adore him. His soft-spoken conduct, strictness of form and friendly nature have earned him a place respect in the hearts of all who know him.

Ranked 5th Dan in Karate, 3rd Dan in Kobudo and 2nd Dan in Aikido, Sensei Najeem is Chief Examiner of the style for the UAE.
