Hailing from the deep woods of Sweden, I had very humble beginnings – growing up in a small town with very few martial arts schools, I was privileged in getting a versatile base through a couple of years of Kempo. After dabbling in the arts available in my hometown, I moved to Gothenburg where a long love story with Capoeira began under the tutelage of Monitora Pirata. She was also the one to give me my Capoeira nickname ‘Lobo’.
In 2006, I moved to Australia (where I currently reside). I continued to practise Capoeira on my own, but eventually found myself stagnating and eager for a new challenge. This is why for the past few years back I have been training with Jow Ga Kung Fu in central Sydney, under Sigung Randy Sullivan Bennett.
Throughout the years of training my passion for martial arts have never lessened, which is the main reason I’m now writing a blog. As I continue to learn and grow in skills and experience, I keep realising how little I actually know about martial arts – so my intention with this blog is to share my thoughts, explore topics of interest and hopefully deepen my understanding.
