Karate, also known as the “mother of all Japanese martial arts”, is really a laying foundation for all other fighting styles, originating in Japan… Developed in the Ryukyu islands (modern day Okinawa), it incorporates a lot of Chinese moves (like Fujian White Crane’s) kicks, punches, and strikes. Sometimes the worldwide popularity of the karate goes as far as to serves as an “umbrella term” for all Oriental striking-based martial arts. This, however, is very inaccurate, as karate’s rise to prominence began just 100 years ago, with a lot of Chinese fighting styles being out there much longer. Despite the differences, perhaps the fact how flawlessly karate does combine the moves of both Chinese and Japanese martial arts is what ultimately makes it so universally popular. Karate is mainly an offense-based martial art, though oftentimes used for the self-defense matters too…

Hans has a long and interesting career of a martial arts pro, spanning across his life… Living in Dresden in the ’80s, when it was still occupied by the Soviet army, Hans found a way to sign up for underground Karate classes. Training for a few years he was able to master it, then go through few other martial arts training, before he eventually moved to the US at the beginning of the ’90s.
