Soon to download. A new e-book produced by the WKKO. About the journey of a young Renshi Pepels living, training and fighting in the east. Being a student at the Shaolin Monastery Songshan Henan China. Returning to the roots at last.
When I was a small child I had heard of Shaolin through the TV series kung fu with David Carradine. I had also seen some Bruce Lee films, but never liked them. I did like Chuck Norris's contribution to the legendary scene at the colloseum in rome with Bruce Lee. That is why I first started with Karate (Kempo) as a child. After seeing the movie Lone wolf Mcquade in 1983 in which Chuck Norris took on David Carradine, I became interested in kung fu again. I started training (Nggo Mbie Paei) under my teacher Sensei Knoester. A poster about Shaolin also hung on the wall in the modest and small Dojo. I set myself a goal from that point on, that one day I would live and train there. That I would see for myself what was true and false about the mythical Shaolin Monks. The following story is a rough description of moments in my two trips to Henan China in the years to follow, the stories and events are not described in sequence. Two unique but bizarre journeys back in time supplemented with historical stories about Shaolin. Osu Renshi Pepels

Sensei Senol and Sempai Hoek visit the Kenshikai Dojo of Shihan Massimo Fontanarosa in Italia. Osu
A couple of years ago we where guests at the Kenshikai mountain training.
It was there where we first Met Shihan Massimo Fontanarosa. A very hospitable and skillful karate master.
But above all a very humble and friendly person. And in class he joins the training not judging but experiencing!
Same goes for his students. We had a great time that training.
After we met and trained together we were invited to the annual lunch that follows.
What we saw and experienced in the training was also the case in the relaxing lunch.
Now a couple of years later we are again guests in his dojo.
And again a pleasure !
More people like him should teach. And we should work together like this. Not all are one, no every style is it’s own but even then it is more interesting to work together to learn and develop each other !
Shihan Massimo it is a pleasure knowing you !
