The confrontation in WT lessons with the principles of martial arts have gradually given me reason to apply these principles to everyday life.
 Gaining and maintaining self-confidence as the basis of my philosophy of life has proven itself.
 WT is in this respect guideline and part of my life!

Why did you start with WingTsun?

I wanted to improve my self-defense skills in case of emergency. Based on my experiences in karate and ju-jutsu, where the sporting aspect was in the foreground or where it was placed by my former trainers, I was looking for something new and “resounding efficiency”. A side note: Only gradually did I realize that efficiency in self-defense does not necessarily have to be “resounding” to work!

Why are you still doing WingTsun?

… because it still fascinates me and keeps me young and dynamic. Since it is an evolving martial art that does not stop at the traditional facts, even after more than 30 years there are still new things to discover and practice.

What was your standout WT experience?

That was the Hong Kong-China trip in 1997 and the meeting with many masters, also of other styles.

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

The joy about what I had achieved and the pride that grew from it were similar in quality, as outstanding.
 With the 1st HG it was more the “entrance ticket” to the higher techniques, which additionally inspired me.
With the 5th MG came the realization that one must return to
the basics, and how ingenious simplicity can be!
