During this training, you will stay in a private room at the Vortex Control Defence Europe House. The accommodation is 400 meters away from the training grounds. The rooms have a cooking area, private bath, television, and Wi-Fi connection.

This training and each lesson time is exclusively for practical combat. During this training, you will learn the self-defense techniques without any fitness requirements. Of course Vortex Control Defence Europe approves conditioning and fitness, yet it is expected of you to do that in your own time before or after lessons.

You are welcome to join everyday for light conditioning in the evening, which is not part of the official lessons. If you wish to work out there is equipment for you. During this training, you will gain a better understanding of self-defense, the conduct of fighting, anatomy, control points, leverage, gravitational forces, acceleration, and body movement.

You will enjoy an intensive training seven hours a day with extra time for you to deepen your practice in the training area.

About Vortex Control Defence Europe

The Vortex control system Kung Fu is a total control system incorporating scientific body weapons with unconditional work ability in both attacks and defense. The formula allows a pre-emptive attack and defense, a much faster system of fighting than the conventional reaction response defenses.

The system is not fancy and does not require any acrobatics in its moves. Anybody in any physical shape can gain from the classes. All body styles, any age at any skill level will find the training riveting, exhilarating, and intensely practical.

After a seminar everyone is able to use the obtained knowledge to defend themselves efficiently and to increase their skill with a training device. The core of the system is made of three traditional styles that include a developed form of hand system, based on the style by Lawrence Lee, a complete developed objects and knife system based on Larry Alquuezar, and a modern Escrima Arnis Balintawak stick fighting system based on the Rosada family style.

After each class, you are welcome to join for a relaxed swim. This is not part of the official class although, new movements and learned techniques are best repeated in water.

    Valuable training

    CONS Cons: Nothing to complain about. The location where the training takes place is in the suburbs of Hamburg. A lot of greenery, which is good for running/swimming or biking after the class.

    PROS Pros: I am a woman in my early forties who attended the training to learn about self defense techniques in the event of bad encounters. Knowledge and skills that could be particular useful when you live in a big city or travel on your own to unfamiliar places. I did not have any experience in martial arts prior to joining the training but at the end of 4 days, not only was I surprised by how much I learned in a short period of time but also the confidence I built in handling difficult situations. The training is taught by an extremely knowledgeable and competent instructor, Knud (You can check out his resume). He has developed a methodology for instruction and progression that is tailored to the profile of the trainee . In my case, I had many drills to learn the fundamentals of proper techniques by building muscle memory. Knud provided me with clear explanations and real life scenarios for me to understand the reasoning behind various body movements. He is very patient with constructive feedback and provides you with resourceful tools to build on the knowledge gained during/after the training. To sum up: I developed knowledge and skills to defend myself during this training and can't recommend Knud highly enough!

    Review by Javier Gines from Sweden

    Fantastic learning experience!

    CONS Cons: I did not really find anything I would not like. I just hope I will be able to practice what he learned me me as there is no really other place where you can get this learnings!

    PROS Pros: The training experience was like I never tried before. Knud focuses in teaching practical tools to defend yourself in just a few days. Not like other type of workshops where you get an introduction and then you need to keep learning. Knud has been travelling all over the world and has extracted the key learnings from the people he has been with. This came through with a lot of tips and details with can make the difference in winning or loosing. We trained even in the beach and enjoyed fantastic meals. Knud had perfect English and the communication was very smooth. For me who has never really tried self defense and fight techniques I can tell you I came out able to do basic moves which can help me if needed. The location was also very good. Close to Hamburg in a small village I could focus totally in the training and enjoy some bike rides in a beautiful surrounding with no distractions. Knud was very kind and showed around the area

    Review by Oscar Pathuis from Netherlands

    One of my best holidays ever

    CONS Cons: For me personally, there was nothing to not like; I felt welcome, learned a lot and met some of the nicest people ever.

    PROS Pros: I liked the no nonsense approach, having noticed the almost religious dogmatic rules in some other martial arts. This training was a (kind of) mix of Wing Chun, boxing and some great new techniques. Knud's teaching qualities are great, breaking everything up in small pieces; by that I mean the exercises, not your limbs :-) I also like the fact that I did not have any time to focus on personal or work related matters and the food was incredible as cooked by Karin, Knud's wife. To practice the routines at home you get all the tools you need in this short intense period. I was even lucky enough to meet a Dutch friend, who is a beginner in martial arts too, with whom I'll practice when we are back in Holland.
