I was born in Munich, Germany, have been practicing TaeKwonDo for about 45 years and teaching for over 40 years.

In 2022 I was awarded with the 9th Dan, the highest rank black belt in Traditional TaeKwonDo, by the president of the International TaeKwonDo Federation in Korea.
As a Grandmaster in Traditional TaeKwonDo I have gained international recognition and numerous awards throughout the years, including the Hall of Fame Award for Outstanding Traditional Leadership.

After establishing nine schools in Germany I opened the first Traditional TaeKwonDo Center in Tampa, Florida in 1997. Many more followed.
I became the first certified Kimoodo instructor in the United States.

Over the years I conducted lots of international training camps, in Korea, the homeland of TaeKwonDo, in Europe and Afrika and of course, in America.

My challenge today is to teach all over the world using new training methods.
