Started my Budo career late 70's in Kyokushin with shihan Loek Hollander. In 1984 I became DESHI (accepted student) of Shihan Henny Ruberg at Budokai Hontai, where i learned all the details of Kyokushin (Kihon, Kata, kumite). I had to stop in 1992. At that time it was organized under the umbrella of the IKO (Sosai Masutatsu Oyama).
In my second and recent Budo-career (2016) I learned the new Kata's from shihan Vlado Haljer of the KIKO (Kancho Hatsuo Royama). It was also my first introduction with KOBUDO.
In this period I also became DESHI of Jan Vleesenbeek at Budokai Vleesenbeek. Sempai Ecem Yuksel teached me the new details of the KWF Kata's.
Recently (summer 2018) I became DESHI of Budo Shihan Jan Kallenbach, teacher in Tai Ki Ken, Shin-Ken, Bo-Ken and Bo.
