A Bit About Me

started Judo at a young age, followed by Karate.

After I joined the Royal Netherlands Navy, I started Aikido, followed by Ju Jitsu and Aiki Jujitsu.  
I started training Judo again within the Navy. At a later stage I became a Kyusho Jitsu/Dim Mak instructor, which is the art and science of deadly pressure point fighting, an art already used in Aiki Jujitsu from several hundred of years ago.

In 1991, after a nine month course, I passed my exams and became a certified martial arts
instructor and received a government recognised diploma.
