A little history

What inspired The Emblem of Respect

This is me (left one)

From elementary school till end secondary education I was bullied a lot. Didn't want to go to school and didn't have much friends. Yes, that left a mark, and it's still 'visible'. In 1998, when I was 16 years old I started to practice Kyokushinkai Karate in the town where I grew up, and fell in love with the values that where taught there. The first thing that I got was 'to great the Dojo' and to always have respect for and towards one another. Four years later I switched to Pencak Silat and this was right up my alley. I graduated for my Black belt in 2011. My Maha Guru past away in 2013 and in 2015 I decided to teach what I had been thaught. Same technics, but with a different approach. An approach more suited for this current society. I have been teaching very important values, what I call the six core values.

This photo was taken around December 31st, 2003. I was training for my Orange belt.
