The highest level of Taekwondo

Highest award 10th Dan Taekwondo for the martial arts pioneer Jakob Beck!

Burgau: Triple gym | At the first major Budo course in Burgau in 2015, the highest DAN holders in the Budo Center Europe organization were honored and rewarded with an upgrade.

The highest award, 10th Dan Taekwon-Do, went to the founder and president of the Budo-Center Europe Grand Master Jakob Beck. For him it was not just a DAN award, but rather a recognition, appreciation and bowing of the association to his great life achievement. Grandmaster Jakob Beck gained his first judo experience in the 1940s and 1950s. In the 1960s he began TKD training in the renowned martial arts school of Carl Wiedmeier under the well-known Korean grandmaster Kwon Jae Hwa. He passed all brown and black belt exams up to and including the 3rd DAN under the personal guidance of General Choi Hong Hi, the founder of the TKD himself.
The pioneer of martial arts was not only satisfied with Taekwon-Do, he also developed his own Budo style (Allkampf-Jitsu), the all-combat system as a new form of self-defense. A system that has been used in police training for a long time. In 1968 he founded the Budo Center Europe. And still today - at the age of 84 - he heads the organization independently, competently and with a lot of heart as always.

Uwe Gütler said in his appreciation speech: "I can speak for many of those present here when I say that our lives would have been different if you and the Budo-Center Europe hadn't existed. Martial arts have a very strong influence - and far beyond the mere training. Without you we would not be here in any case ".

At this point, congratulations on the 10th DAN Taekwon-Do, dear Mr. Jakob Beck, from your association - represented by all high-ranking DAN carriers who have signed your certificate.

We congratulate and bow to you and your life's work!
