Keith R. Kernspecht is possibly the most successful martial arts instructor in the world.
His European WingTsun Organization boasts 1,000 chapters in Germany alone, with more than 60,000 students.
For those of us who have owned our own schools, this is a mind-boggling concept.
Keith began training in the 1950s, and has never been "stuck" in his training. He searches for martial truth, for principles and skills that can make his art deeper and more effective.
You would think that if people called you "the father of Wing Chun in Europe," you would become a bit rigid in your curriculum. But even though he is linked to top masters such as Leung Ting (WingTsun) and Sam Chin (I Liq Chuan and Zhong Xin Dao), Keith Kernspecht truly represents the ideal of lifelong learning.
You can listen to him talk about his martial arts journey in the new edition of my Internal Fighting Arts podcast. Here are links:
