It all happened in pre - WingTsun times. My 1982 trainer certificate was personally prepared by my Sensei Johannes Trybull (1908-1986), a highly decorated World War II veteran, who started to learn Jiu-Jitsu during the late 1920's from descendants of a samurai family in Yokohama, Japan.

Today you would probably call him "special ops". During World War II, he taught other special ops soldiers, who infiltrated units of Hitler’s army and caused diversions by killing key personnel during nightly attacks. He is one of the very few instructors I ever had, who during unimaginable war times actually had to use his martial arts skills to kill in unarmed combat.

Jiu-Jitsu master Johannes Trybull was teaching in Rostock, Germany an ongoing course of Judo Self-defense and Jiu-Jitsu with the help of Olaf Trybull and Joachim Drechsler. He was also a recognized instructor of the East German Army and Police forces (NVA & DVP).
