Hello all, I found this forum recently and thought I'll come and hang out here for a bit and see how things develop. My name is Koos, I'm originally from the Netherlands but have been living in the UK since 1999. I've had a passion for martial arts since I was 11 years of age and started my journey in ITF Taekwondo, under (now Grand Master) Wim Bos. I obtained my 2nd degree black belt in 1988 at the age of 18. Life took a few turns since and I ended up in Devon, working for an international company and the travel involved got me in touch with Jeetkunedo instructors in the netherlands. I trained with them weekly until my job brought me working in the headoffice. Under their guidance and approval I've set up a local Jeetkunedo training group here in the Southwest and have been running weekly training classes since 2017 now. Our Jeetkunedo lineage is via Ted Wong and I'm considered a 3rd generation trainer. My instructors were both certified by Ted Wong and therefore are 2nd generation. I hope to enjoy myself here and if you're ever in the southwest of the UK (Torbay area) drop me a line , your welcome to come and train along with us. Other interests for me are music and spending time with the family and two dogs.
