Escrima and WingTsun
make me safe, keep me young!

Why did you start with WingTsun?

Whether weak, blind, big or small, never be defenseless
with WingTsun/Escrima.

Why are you still doing WingTsun?

Optimal self-defense, first-class training at the highest level – keeps young and promotes health.
 Creates a sense of belonging between people of different cultures.

What was your standout WT experience?

The first meeting with my SiFu Thomas Roggenkamp in 1994 and my SiPak Werner Landes in Hamburg was a WT experience.
 The meeting with three outstanding and human personalities: SiGung GM Kernspecht, GM Bill Newman and especially GM Giuseppe Schembri, with whom I have been learning WingTsun since 1995 and to whom I owe a lot.

What changed for you when you received the 1st HG or 5th MG?

The 1st HG was for me the entry to a true martial art that enables the weaker to physically stand up to a stronger – the first of the three levels of WingTsun. This also corresponded to a personal decision made earlier to master WingTsun – later perhaps Escrima – professionally as well as possible.

Reaching the 5th MG corresponded to my spiritual calling to focus my personal path on the third level of WingTsun, the spiritual level, and thus to follow my motto “people nurture people”.
