Affiliated School Director
I was born in Kiel in 1972, where I completed my master degree in business administration and still live to this day.
After having learned the Yang style 103 Form in 2009, I was looking for a way to further develop my skills and inevitably came across Master Yang Jun and the International Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Association, which I joined in early 2010. To be able to fully focus on practicing and offering training in Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan, I quit my regular job in 2010. Ever since, I have attended seminars held by Master Yang once a year (in Berlin, Cologne and Rome/San Gemini) and participated in seminars held by the German Center Directors Johannes Mergner and Frank Grothstück.
Moreover, Thilo Krienke and myself have organized seminars held by Johannes Mergner in Kiel on a regular base.
Two students of my school took part at the 2013 Berlin Seminar with Master Yang for the first time. One of them entered the Ranking System with Rank 1.
I am proud to be a member of the International Yang Family and to help spreading Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan at my Affiliated School.
