2014 - Started in WT Center.
2017 - Wing Tsun Instructor - Thursday evening Womens class.
I have had the pleasure of practicing Wing Tsun since the summer of 2014. My debut happened at random, as I would pass by Ãstbanegade on my way home several times a week.
With no prior martial arts experience, I stumbled upon the club and decided to enter one day, as my regular fitness appointment went off on a long summer break. Wing Tsun turned out to be a challenge â and still is.
And thatâs what keeps me there.
Iâve had the good fortune of training with and alongside competent personalities â most of them men â which for women is quite an asset.
The reason being that it becomes very evident that oneâs strength often is no match for the opponentâs or - worst case â an assailantâs.
Learning how the body works and reacts, and practicing technique and structure becomes a given, and I feel that being able to train potentially dangerous situations,
with people I can trust, is a great advantage.
Today, I instruct a womenâs class on Thursday nights along with Sije Signe.
My own training includes joining classes at least twice a week, participating in seminars, and taking private lessons with Sifu Lars Murholt a couple of times a month.
