Hanshi Joaquim Villalta

WEBBS Vice President

& Representative for Spain.

Profile:

Hanshi, started training in martial arts over 40 years ago, beginning with Karate-Do and progressively combining this style with classic Jiujitsu styles e.g. Koryu, Miura & Fukuno ryu. Hanshi competed in semi and full contact disciplines, training with multiple teachers in order to find a comprehensive system focused on the Bushido principles, and combat effectiveness.

It is this desire that led him to be fascinated by the work and effectiveness of Soke Cheek and his system of Jiujitsu.

The formation of WEBBS in 2001 led Hanshi to fully integrate into WEBBS exclusively at the international level for its values, philosophy and philanthropy freed from mere commercial or lucrative purposes.
