Presentation of our JKD friends over the world

Joel Ramos, TWJKD Philippines

Today I just want to pay my respects to a member of the Ted Wong JKD family who passed away last week. Joel Ramos was 46 years old and his pasing due to heart failure was a choc for most of us. Joel was more in contact with Mikael than me but we have been friends on facebook for  quite some time .

I am sending my condolences to the family and friends.

He has now joined our Sifu Ted in  heaven , Rest in Peace 😦

JKD NORWAY – Håkon Didriksen

This is a new category, I wanted to have statements and information about our JKD friends in a separate place.

This is the first testimony, Håkon thought it would be better to make an interview,  here it goes :

– Who is Håkon Didriksen?

Håkon is a 38-year-old man who is a training junkie and musician in the band Susperia, I am married and have 3 children all are going to school .I am an energetic and restless person who needs new impulses almost all the time in order to not be bored Therefore is the training a good way to get my energy out.

 – When did you start with Martial arts?

I started Martial Arts when I was about 18-19 years and Shitoryu Sports Karate, Wing Chun, Krav Maga, kickboxing, Juijitsu Ninjutsu, and then eventually JKD, before this,  I did street fighting, both voluntary and involuntary… I was probably a troubled kid and ended up in a lot of fights as a young man, I learnt fighting the hard way by being beaten by people in the street.

– Why JKD?

JKD is like a self-defense style with no compromise which is so intricate it does not get boring + that it is simple enough that it actually works at a street level.. This is simply why I chose it.


– What is your inspiration and motivation ?

Min inspiration comes mostly from music, I use music as a way to escape from everyday life, I often write music when I’m in a base spirit, (the lone wolf mood) I’m enjoying my own company and is therefore I am considered by some people to be a bit of a lone wolf, but to go for a walk alone in the woods gives me lots of inspiration…

– You are also in a hard rock band, tell us about Susperia

Susperia has been part of my life since 1999 and still is.  Susperia is a band playing aggressive music. Susperia was once black metal, but now we are more melodic trash metal,  we are the same five guys in the band as we were when we started in 99, we have experienced everything from bone fractures to heart attack and addiction, but we are still alive and kicking . Standing on stage gives me the same kick as a good free sparring, I’m probably a person who also needs a kick so music and live performance fits my personality perfectly.

– Family, work, JKD and Music , how do you combine all this ?

It can be difficult to combine everything together, but I have a great patient lady who gives me a lot of room for my “needs” and that’s a good thing for me. As I said I am a terribly restless person, so it is not wise to hold me back… 🙂

 

Thank you Håkon 🙂

Mikael´s first Seminar: Training and friendship !

As I said before this was a date to remember and a great opportunity as well. Mikael was very pleased , Håkon´s group is composed of very dedicated guys , he says it was very nice to be there and meet them all, he had a great time and looks forward to next time.

The  title ” training and friendship” is important to us, this is our moto for our seminars, but it is not just a title it has a purpose and this was brought to a whole new level this weekend. I see it from the outside and it is no question that there is a true friendship between Håkon and Mikael just because it is simple and direct between them.

I asked Håkon what he thought about the seminar and here is was he wrote:

“The seminar was incredibly inspiring and fun, we learned a lot in a short time and all the guys said it was an incredibly good seminar, we are already looking forward to next time.
We learned many details, for example structure, kicking, hitting, straight lead, sparring, we went through the ground fighting, defense, attack to defense, Hit On Retreat, combinations, different focus pad drills, timing,  distance and much more
I tried to take Mikael down and it’s not so easy but you and those who have trained with him for so long know about that.
 

 

I laughed, and my children laughed too, it’s no wonder when you see how I’m being tossed around like a doll…. damn I had no chance!
 
 

 

And if you ask Mikael: do you know sidekick? See what he answers.. it is a funny joke now!
His sidekick was sick! It was so hard I flew off the ground and backwards and landed on my car, it is the truth, it is such a shame we did not filmed it! “

 So as I wrote on FB,  next time there will be a french girl in the picture!

On the way… to Norway

I drove Mikael to the airport this morning at 5.30, the flight went well he landed at 8 in Norway, he could not get on any train at the arrival but he found a buss and it will be another 3 hours to Håkon.

I feel very sad I could not go, I would have loved to see Mikael do his first Seminar. The thing is you can´t do it all, sometimes you have to choose and I chose to save money to go to San Fran in september.

I get messages from the buss, it is apparently very nice over there…
