History

I started with ju-jutsu in 1974 in Satori Kwai Mortsel where I had my first lesson on 31-03-1974.

 

In 1975 my club joined the Belgian Federation of Jiu-Jitsu Practitioners, where I earned my 1° dan on 20-04-1980.

Looking for a federation with more possibilities we joined the Belgian Ju-Jitsu Federation in 1982.

In 2000 there was the formation of the Flemisch Ju-Jitsu Federation (VJJF) to which we still belong to this day.

 

Since 2005: General Technical Director of the VJJF

 

Since 2012: Honorary Technical Director of the VJJF

 

 

 

Some other grades.

 

Karate: 1° dan on 11-10-1997

 

Judo: orange belt

 

Aikido: white belt

 

Escrima: madunong guro (IKAEF)

pangulong guro (Cinco Tero Escrima)

 

Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo Jitsu: yudansha

 

So, why compose something new?

 

After so many years and especially so many influences I came to the conclusion that 'my jujutsu' was no longer the same as that of my colleagues in the federation.

 

That's why I choose a new name for my way of practising this wonderful martial art: Kujaku Ryu Goshin Jutsu. If you want to know more about it, then check "The Name".

Oops, that's a long time ago!

Some dates.
