Berlin based martial artist and business man Georg F. Brueckner accomplised a lot. He helped introduce Taekwondo and kickboxing to Germany in the sixties, founded WAKO and created the TopTen brand of martial arts and boxing equipment. Let’s remember George as one of the great pioneers of European karate and martial arts.
While he was still alive people labeled him a living legend. American karate fighter Joe Lewis was highly regarded as a champion and teacher of kickboxing, sport karate and self defense. Here are some memories to share about his seminars in Germany from 2000 in Koblenz and Unna.
