From a recent interview with highsnobsociety.com :
How and why did you first get involved in judo?
A friend of my parents suggested it since my mother was against me being a boxer like my father. I went to a class to see it, and I liked it right away. That was in 1979.
What about bodyguarding?
I started in the German army. At the time it was mandadory to enlist in Germany and I thought it was a good idea to do something for your country.

Good old footage and memories from my active times as a Judoka. I have won and lost many fights. As long as give your best and you trained hard, there is no shame in loosing. There will always be at one point someone that will be able to beat you. . Music: Great Spirit (feat.
