"My martial arts journey started with Karate when I was 7 years old. My father was a black belt and of course took me with him. After that I came across chinese boxing and through my uncle Panantukan. In 2003/2004 I was able to train a few times in MCMAP (Marine Corps Martial Arts Programme) in San Diego through family members that were part of the US Navy. I was astonished by the simplicity and effectiveness so when I got back to Germany I was looking for something similar, so I started my Krav Maga journey. Personally I was never a big friend of movements that look great but have no practical value. So to me it was always important to use and learn techniques that are based on our instincts. After training in all big Krav Maga Organizations that have branches in Germany, I came to the IMKM and to be honest I was blown away. Not only on technical level but also on the human side.
