About me

I started my martial arts career over 30 years ago with Judo. Later I learned Karate, Wing Chun and Jeet Kune Do. After watching the “Gracie in Action” tapes in the early ninetees I was immediately hooked by Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I started training on my own with some friends before I met Richard Braga a BJJ Blackbelt from Sao Paolo who become a good friend and trainingpartner. <<read more>>

My Instructionals

I am frequently releasing high-quality instructional videos and DVDs. My goal is to teach stuff that is never taught on video before. I focus not only on the variety of techniques but also on the small details that make a technique work more effortless. Usually my videos have a special topic and follow a gameplan that is connecting all techniques together. You can find more informations about my videos <<Here>>


The last 25 years were quite a ride. I trained like crazy, met some very interesting people and learned more about martial arts that I could have ever imagined. Check out my gallerie with snapshots from the past. Meeting all these great masters was quite a honor for me and I am deeply thankful for all these experiences.
