Our latest video is online.
Fulltime is our documentary series which tells episode by episode the storys of different long-term students at our school. Join us in episode 4 when Benajmin Soubeille talks about his 3 years of intense training at our academy and how he experienced this long journey from studentship to teachership. Showing kindness and softness on all levels of the journey I was very proud to hand him recently official our instructor certificate. Benjo was one of my first long-term students at our Wudang Deutschland Academy. Dedicating and entrusting three full years into the study of mainly Xing Yi Quan and Internal MMA he taught us many great lessons on his way so far. Seeing him during these times makes me certain that wherever life will lead him, his tools in the martial arts, his humbleness with people and his questioning and strong mind in his research, will lead him and make him a great role model, friend and teacher in all aspects of his life. I wish you all the best Benjo!
