WingTsun is for me a brilliant martial art and philosophy of life, which has become one of the most important contents of my life.
Why did you start with WingTsun?
I have been practicing martial arts since I was 6 years old, but I never had the feeling that I had found the right thing. I was so to speak on the long search for a fighting system that works in reality, until I came through an acquaintance to WingTsun. The system and my SiFu Andreas Groß finally convinced me. I like to think back to this unusual trial training … Thank you, SiFu!
Why are you still doing WingTsun?
… because I found the martial art I was looking for and realize every day that I am far from finished. There is still so much to learn. I am still at the very beginning.
This ingenious system shows me again and again my own limits and it is just huge fun to develop and to practice WingTsun and to pass it on.
What was your standout WT experience?
One, hard question!. My first private lesson with SiGung K.R. Kernspecht was for me personally the most outstanding WT experience.
The fact to be taught by the Grandmaster “personally” in his training room, the amount of information, the insights into the system, the outlook on the future … That was really something special.
Of course, more lessons followed and will follow, but the first one was definitely the most brilliant for me. But basically, every class, be it in the context of a seminar or as a private lesson, is a really outstanding WT experience in itself.
What changed for you when you received the 1st HG or 5th MG?
I always tell my students that the 1st HG exam was the most difficult of all. One entered a new, different stage of WingTsun teaching. That was significant.
Reaching the 5th MG really stepped it up a notch. The exam was certainly not easier, but I was much more relaxed.
The main difference for me, however, is that now I see more clearly that there is so much I don’t know or can’t do yet, and that I really still have a lot to learn. I know that I don’t know anything, or much more, can’t do anything ….
In addition, the responsibility and obligation has increased for me to continue my education and to constantly improve in order to live up to the claim of “mastery”.
