Sensei Torben began his martial arts training in 1976 and he has been a member of IOGKF Denmark since the organisations formation. In his over 35 year career, Sensei Torben has travelled all over the world. In 1989 he moved to California where Master Higaonna was living at the time. He stayed for 9 months training for 5 hours every day. He acted in the position of assistant instructor at Higaonna Sensei's USA Dojo during that time. Sensei Torben takes a practical approach to self defence but has also had a successful tournament career, including finishing first at the MCF, European and Fuzhou China exchange championships. Sensei Torben's day to day work focusing on health through his company 'manuvision' has given him a deep knowledge of the physical, mental and spiritual workings of the human body like no one else.
