MSU Martial artist

"My involvement in Kelab Seni Silat Gayung Fatani (KSSGF) at the Management & Science University (MSU) was initially only to develop my interest in martial arts but it has taken me far," said Mohd Hairulnizam Ibrahim, 26, on the beginning of his involvement in martial arts.

He was then a student of Biomedical Sciences at MSU and was one of the earliest members in KSSGF, MSU. "I was impressed with its sense of movement and the beauty of its dance movements, as each movement of the hand has its own meaning," he said. He is now a lecturer in the Faculty of Health & Life Sciences at MSU in addition to acting as an instructor for the Pertubuhan Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia (PSGFM).

Besides being active in KSSGF, Hairulnizam was in the Student Representative Council at MSU. "Participation in extra-curricular activities helped me better focus on learning and help polished my soft skills," he added.

He said the most memorable time of his involvement in martial arts was when he was selected together with five PSGFM coaches to represent Malaysia in March in the Festival des Arts Martial Bercy, in Paris, which involved 32 types of martial arts from around the world.

MSU emphasises academic performance and active participation in extra-curricular activities for the development of graduates who are competent, and have the soft skills that will add value to their marketability.
