Hubert Laenen Sensei was born in Belgium on 28/06/1959.

At the age of six he started studying martial arts. Now he is a 8th Dan Kyoshi and European Chief Instructor from Okinawa for Koryu Karate Jutsu Jissen Ryu and Motobu Ryukyu Kobujutsu Moidi.

His most important sensei are Shiroma Seihan Soke (10th Dan) and his successor Yagi Isao Kancho (9th Dan) in Motobu Ryukyu Kobujutsu Moudi Tuite Udundi, Matsuda Sensei (10th Dan) in Shorin Ryu Karate and Hokama Sensei (10th Dan) in Goju Ryu and Kyusho Jutsu. He has studied Judo, Kenpo, Kobujutsu, Yoga, Zen, Shiatsu, Aikijutsu, Taichi, … all his life, but his mind is always open for new things.

“Everything has a martial arts meaning, hikite, kage tsuki etc… Most Japanese Sensei don’t know about it because they have never learned it!”

Hubert Laenen Sensei traveled all over the martial world and still goes at least once a year to Okinawa to study and to learn the old Koryu Karate Jutsu Bunkai in Karate Kata.
