More information

Started training kickboxing 1986, 1989 with Iron man club.
4th degree black belt.
Swedish champion.
I have the 1st degree black belt in Defendo.
I have been training with Jyrki since the 80s and he used Defendo techniques and tactics, but at that time he had not found the name Defendo yet. We worked together as bouncers in some of the worst nightclubs and pubs and some bigger events in Angered Gothenburg. I’m still training with Jyrki today. We are running the oldest Ironman kickboxing club in Gothenburg, Ironman Majorna.
