certificate presentation corejkd

The Germany Seminar 2017 was a fantastic experience. In the image above, you see Marco Hildebrandt getting his certification to instruct—and prep new students for certification—in the Rebel Wing Chun, Weapons, and Core JKD system.

Also certified were Ninja for passing her Level 1 testing in Core JKD, Rebel Wing Chun, and Weapons and Ohm for her Instructor Certification in the same systems. These women inspire!

More video and images are on the way. A BIG, BIG thank you to Katrin and Freya for helping to keep us organized, fed, and on our toes.

Tired of the ego-based training that fills the internet? You know, the training that doesn't change because it's always been done that way?

Because it's easy to yell and look tough with biceps bursting and tattoos meant for legitimizing what they are saying. Seriously.

Because no one bothers to innovate. No one bothers to rock the boat and create something more efficient—and pardon me—but something that actually works in real fights—regardless of your size!

Regardless of whether or not you have tattoos or a loud voice or weight 250lbs and can tear phonebooks in half with your meaty palms.

Ever have a girl of 135lbs put your head on a swivel from a hook that is more powerful than a man a hundred pounds heavier?

Yes, really. We do that. I train my students in such ways. 

And no, this isn't the Defeat An Attacker In 3 Simple Steps bullshi* that also fills the web. These con-persons like your money and will say anything to get it.

I have a reputation. I want you safe. It comes from seeing too many people being abused for just wanting to be themselves.

It comes from my being raised with 4 brothers and 4 sisters and wanting them safe.

It comes from my having to spend the majority of my early teaching days beating up egos left and right—before the person would realize that the ego doesn't give them fighting ability.

That sort of thing gets old.

I don't do that anymore. I tell people with an egotism that there are plenty of other places that will train them.

I only want people who understand what they want—and what they want is to learn how to train to defend themselves against any kind of attacker in real threat-to-life scenarios. 

What a novel idea: Train to learn how to defend yourself.

Not train to showcase your ego.

That's why I created Core JKD and Rebel Wing Chun. 

For you.

For the person who knows what they want.

For the person who has been through other martial art systems and still can't fight in a real threat scenario.

I've trained them all. People with double black belts in other systems. Military, law enforcement. People I can't even mention because of their secret occupations. 

They all had one thing in common: They were STILL seeking someone who could teach them how to defend themselves in real situations.

You probably know what I'm talking about. 

You can check me out on Youtube to see my teaching style.

What really sets me apart is what I know about the human individual, physics, and efficiency in life-threatening situations.

I don't have an egotism that gets in the way of making sure YOU get the best education that will help you.

If you like what you see and what I have to say, well, there's plenty more that I don't put up on Youtube.

Those videos are below.

I wish you well in your search,
