The winds of life – light and shade – make us more and more aware of ourselves, if we allow the change. Fear, pain and disappointment should not determine our lives, because we block necessary changes. This has taught me my life in all areas (family, being a father, children, work, friends, various conditionings of people and countries, etc.). There is no end of searching and seeing through. Growing up in a beautiful valley in the Black Forest, in a restaurant with a butcher near Freiburg, I’ve already been confronted very early with stress through seemingly never ending work. Conformity was not my style, so I put up resistance. This tension built, understandably, enormous pressure on my family. What helped was the nature which I visited as often as I could, alone or with friends. Then the martial arts came into my life, which have helped me to release the pressure.
From there, one could say, a positive, awareness raising fight began, that still continues today. Now I live and work in Berlin and often travel to Switzerland, Italy and through Germany, conveying my kind of movement arts at various locations.*
Thanks to all who encountered me as a genuine opponent at eye level. These were my best teachers!
Just being there and see what we have never seen, thought and felt is possible at any moment. We can, if we consciously let flourish the mindset of a young child, who is without fear in the first 3 years. The seeds of this are planted in our mind. Earth, water, fire, air, space and the correct conditions – and it happens because it is natural.
He ho for winds, that converge the personal and the us without separation.
