About me

Beside being a martial and healing artist I am also a musician.
I was born on 1975 in Bavaria, Germany, and moved to Berlin in 1997. There I was going for a career as Jazz Guitar Player, but in 2003 my live changed quite a lot, so the Asian Martial- and Healing Arts became my profession. Nevertheless I keep my musicians heart, playing the Indian Bamboo flute and learning about the old traditional Hindustanic Music from North-India.

I am teaching “Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method” since 2010 in Berlin, Germany.

Further I provide health care service with Zen-Shiatsu since 2007. This is a holistic method of treatment, coming from Japan with roots from the old Chinese Medicine.

Since 2009 I am also teaching basic knowledge in Qigong, which are ancient Daoist methods of self-development, holistic health care and meditation.
