"German" WT instructors
I just realized something.
All of the WT teachers I have had so far are Germans (or from Germany), such as Sifu Asad Mir and Si-Fu Ralph Haenel, except for the occasional seminar with Sifu Carson Lau. In case you are wondering… yes, this includes Sifu German Ferrer of WT Calgary, a “German” as well!
Okay, now that the lame pun is over and done with…
As part of my academic interest, I had the wonderful opportunity taking part in the first ever Interdisciplinary Fascia Research Course in Ulm, Germany.
It was my first time in Germany. So, what would you do as a WT student? Well, check out some WT schools of course! I visited the WT school in Ulm twice. I also spent a day in Munich and stopped by Sifu Sergej's WT school for a class.
One word summary: nochmals! (a word I learned from a fellow WT trainee in Munich)
Yes, once again please. I would love to train there again, to experience that wonderful “different but the same training” feeling.
Keep an eye out for a few blog entries about my 3 classes of training in Germany.
For now… I will leave you with a beautiful photo of the Ulm Munster, the tallest church in the world with a steeple of 161.5 metres. Beautiful view from the top after 763 steps.
