Welcome! This site is about Budo Karate, (exotic) travel and success.

Budo Karate

The purpose of Budo-Karate is to finish an attack with a single blow and to become friends with people from all over the world.

2017, Olliwaa in Japan

What makes this martial art so enjoyable is that it can be practiced anytime and anywhere. Furthermore, training is possible alone, with 2, 20 or 200 like-minded enthusiasts – and no equipment is required. Karate helps to keep you sane and healthy in an unstable world and it is a universal language that connects people from all walks of life, cultures and ethnicity.

Exotic travel

North Korea, Iran or Lebanon: it’s not taking risks that’s dangerous. It’s routine that kills (your dreams and energy).

There is no better way to expand your horizon and to overcome prejudice, than by setting out on a journey. In my personal experience, even on the ‘axis of evil’ (George W. Bush) you will always meet wonderful people. In fact, everyone is the same. We all have dreams, hopes and want the best for our children.

If you are wondering what the strange name ‘Olliwaa’ means – It means nothing. It is a nickname given to me by a work mate, right Rassmüüs?

By the way, this Blog was started in German and thus there are several articles not (yet) available in English, e.g. specific topics about German politics. In case you are still interested, please use the language switcher (German flag) on the main menu. And, be invited to leave comments below articles you either like or dislike.
