Motto:

WingTsun is for me eternal therapy with myself – physically and mentally – and as a teacher of WingTsun one of the most beautiful professions there is.

Why did you start with WingTsun?

By chance I was in the right place at the right moment. Or in other words: an “angel” lured me into a trial lesson!

Why are you still doing WingTsun?

Because it has been my profession for 12 years and there is nothing more exciting! At 30, I had to turn my life around – I was working in the hospitality industry, which meant I could no longer pursue my hobbies and was therefore unhappy. While I’m happy that I can cook very well as a result, the hospitality industry is a thankless line of work. And of course thanks to my wife – without her I wouldn’t have my own school running so well today!

What was your standout WT experience?

After 20 years of WingTsun there are many stories… Beautiful experiences are always when I meet former Kids-WTler today in adult life! But unfortunately the students come and go again… that is again not so nice, but that’s life! Also the inner WingTsun is something very special, which gives me today the possibility to explain WingTsun better. Through this, my WingTsun has also become completely different again.

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

After the 1st HG I became a package student of my Si-Fu GM Giuseppe Schembri and at the same time made my hobby my profession! This also gave me the opportunity to attend intensive weeks in Germany with GM Thomas Schrön! In addition, I enjoy the small groups with GM Keith R. Kernspecht on Mallorca every year! Who can train with soooo many real grandmasters?! You, all my European training partners as well as my students have made me what I am today and made my WingTsun what it is today! For this my heartfelt thanks! Here’s to more years with you – now as a master!
