About me budopilates®
Mobility and strength of Martials Arts meet the core of Pilates.

A year that brought a big change.
After pneumonia and an embolism, I kept having pain in a vertebra in the thoracic spine.
Physiotherapy and Pilates didn't really help. Something was missing.
When I trained Taekwondo more often again, I noticed an improvement in my symptoms.
So I began to combine exercises from Pilates with the flexibility and strength exercises from the general training program in Taekwondo and the pain in the thoracic spine decreased.
Unfortunately I tore my cruciate ligament, had to wear a splint for several weeks and started physiotherapy again.
In addition, I returned to Pilates and general martial arts routines to strengthen the muscles around the knee and further reduce the pain in the thoracic spine.
Focusing on this combination helped me regain the strength and mobility I was used to.
So it was clear to me that I had to combine these two areas for a holistic training.
In budopilates® I now combine exercises from Pilates with general mobility and strengthening exercises from martial arts.

Budopilates® combines exercises for flexibility, strength and stretching from the training routine of martial artists with Pilates exercises. Special warm-up and cool-down exercises form the framework of a training session. They prepare the body accordingly for the following exercises and help to cool down at the end of the training session. The special exercises, which also address the individual meridians in the body, also increase well-being and performance.
Supporting the training with the own body weight, depending on the exercise focus, different small devices are used.
What does budo mean?
The term "budo" comes from Japanese and is used as a generic term for all Japanese martial arts, but today it is generally used for all martial arts. The word ‘budo’ means ‘the way of the warrior’, and there are many interpretations of it. Nowadays, the emphasis is on a balanced personal, physical and mental development.
I have been training Taekwondo since 1995 and was a competitive athlete, trainer and referee. As a competitive athlete and national team member, I took part in national and international tournaments, European and world championships. The constant motivation to improve has led to the fact that I am now a 6th Dan (6th black belt).
