Marc Adenaw has been practicing martial arts since the age of seven. At a young age he began to learn Judo in Goslar for several years with Manfred and later with ot he Boris Gillner.
Since 1995 he runs Wing Chun and got to know several styles from Sifu Peter Graun, director ot he Wing Chun Center Germany. In 2007 he accompanied Sifu Peter Graun numerous ot heo China. There he learned the most effective martial arts methods from several grandmasters. Since his first visit to Hong Kong in 2007 he travelled together with Sifu Peter Graun at least twice a year to Hong Kong to learn Ving Tsun Kung Fu with Grandmaster Ip Ching, the youngest son of Grandmaster Ip Mans and heir ot he Ip Man legacy.
Marc Adenaw was present as translator and discussion leader at the numerous private trainings that Sifu Graun has been using since 2007 with Grandmaster Ip Ching. The explanations by Grandmaster Ip Ching about the shapes, up ot he wooden doll, the double knives and the long stick impressed him very much. During this time he gained deep insights into this system and decided to document and publish this knowledge in a suitable form.
Since then Marc Adenaw has published several small and very comprehensive books on the subject, such as the 350-page Graundlagen book, numerous video documentaries and websites. Long before anyone else came up with the idea, he and Sifu Peter Graun produced the first 3D learning materials, for which they travelled to Austria to record all movement patterns and shapes using motion capture technology. Excerpts from these recordings can still be found today in the websites and videos.
