Recently I had few questions on subject where did I learn my way of karate. So I thought that would be good topic on the forum, as all of us have been influence by someone. For me training with martial arts started after watching Enter the Dragon J. Along the way I had and still have three main teachers who shaped my understanding of martial arts and planted in my concepts and helped to develop my own ways.
Most influential teacher is Sensei Artur Marchewka 5th Dan Shin Ai Do Karate, he always was encouraging me to try other stuff then karate. As I’m not great with writing in English I put videos instead as picture is a 1000 words.
Second person who changed my way of looking on karate was wrestling Coach Marek Niemiec his ability to translate karate moves into wrestling throws drastically changed my view of karate.
Third most influential instructor is Sensei Marek Mroszczyk whose ability to teach always mesmerise me. I learnt from him how to improve my way of teaching.
I think we all know how Iain started and who was his role models thanks to his brilliant podcast, there is many great instructors and martial artists here I would be interested to read, watch your story.
