Origins of our Kempo


0rigins of our Kempo

  Prof. Dr. Prinz Ganjuuryn Dschero Khan, 12. Dan Kempo - Sifu-Tze G.K. Meijers),

The three sources which brought Kempo to the region of Lippe.                                             

Kempo was introduced to Blomberg by Indonesian-born Richard Claase whilst he was a serving soldier in the Dutch armed forces stationed in the town. Claase was a student of Sifu Meijers. Many of the existing Kempo Dojos in and around Lippe were influenced by the Blomberg Dojo. Due to training sessions and the inspiration of other Grandmasters each Dojo has over the years developed ist own style. Nevertheless the Blomberger influence can still be seen today in the individual Dojos in Augustdorf, Bösingfeld, Pottenhausen ( Lage ), Kalletal, Schieder and, ofcourse, It should also be mentioned that Dojos on the boarder to Lippe in Lower Saxony in Dojos in Bad Pyrmont ( 2) and Steinheim were also influenced.

Kempo was introduced to Kalletal by Andreas Burre who was a student of the late Ted vershuur ( 1937 – 1981 ).Verschuur was a sport instructer serving in the Royal Dutch Airforce. Although stationed with the NATO forces in Hessisch Oldendorf, Germany in 1973 he found time, along with Laeyendecker , to start and uphold a Dojo in Rinteln, Lower Saxony. Andreas Burre developed his own style using the Verschuur/ Laeyendecker influence and named it Shaolin Kempo Hadaka. This style is still practiced today in Kalletal and Rinteln.

In Leopoldshöhe Kempo was introduced by Heinz Gerd Joeken. He was a student of Willi Heuvens. In 1986 Joeken began to give courses at the local further education college in Asemissen. His style also mirrors the influence of Sifu Meijers. As a result four clubs were established in Lippe, three in Leopoldshöhe and one in Lage.

Kempo in Lippe originated in the sixties and was a product of the Netherlands. The style was introduced by 2 Dutch soldiers Meijers and Faulhaber ( both of asiatic descent ) and was by no means a product of the Shaolin temple.

Si-Jo Carel Faulhaber (2.11.1923-29.07.1974) was half-Indonesian and was born in Semeran, Central Java. Faulhaber was so obsessed with Kuntao that instead of going to school he would train for days at a time. When he married in 1950 he was Sargeant 1st Class in the Dutch military in New Guinea. Januar 1954 he moved to the Netherlands and began to teach outside of his family circle in 1959/1960.
