WingTsun and Escrima offer me challenge, employment, balance, willpower and inner peace.

Why did you start with WingTsun or Escrima?

In my hometown, I started Ju-Jutsu at the age of 17. Self-defense had already interested me as a child, but there were not many opportunities in my hometown that could be considered serious. Furthermore, the transport connections were not always advantageous for me. My Ju-Jutsu trainers visited WingTsun courses with our Sifu GM K.R. Kernspecht already at the beginning of the 1980s. They conveyed their enthusiasm to me, so that it was clear to me that I wanted to learn WingTsun. However, this did not work out until the time of my professional training in 1986 to become a police officer in Kassel. This was the next possibility for me. One year later I attended an Escrima course with Master Bill. This system also fascinated me.

Why are you still doing WingTsun?

The technique of WingTsun as well as the skills, knowledge, way of moving, research and influence of our GM K.R. Kernspecht inspires me again and again and keeps my thirst for knowledge.

What was your standout WT experience?

The opening of the British/English WingTsun organization in London in November. 1998 and the 25th and 40th anniversary celebrations of the EWTO.

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

Looking back from the 6th MG, the biggest difference for me was the technical development step.
