Martial Artist and

Gert Corfitzen Jürgensen

My Martial Arts journey began in August '81 when, at the age of seventeen, I embarked on a quest to explore combat, self-defense, and the realms of knowledge within Martial Arts.

Over four decades, I've immersed myself in a myriad of fighting arts, yet my heart has consistently resonated with Karate. From JKA Shotokan to AKSER Shotokai, Goju-ryu, Kyokushin, Wing Tsun, Kickboxing, Kenpo, Tai Chi, and Aikido's Jo-jutsu, with brief encounters in Judo and Jiu Jitsu, each experience has deepened my connection to the world of Martial Arts.

In this journey, a parallel passion for writing has emerged, as I strive to share my views and experiences through books and my blog. At the core of my philosophy is the belief that effective Karate practice should include a dedicated emphasis on Kata. Analyzing Kata will reveal the true essence of Karate where throws, takedowns, and ground fighting are present. I call it Karate Grappling.

As I often say: 

It's not a style; it's open-minded Okinawan Karate.
It's old-style MMA.
