Just a quick update to let you know that my latest book: “Martial Arts, Self-Defense and a Whole Lot More: The Best of Wim’s Blog, Volume 1” is now available in paperback at Amazon.
It took a lot longer than anticipated but that’s entirely my fault by having too many projects going at the same time. So if you’ve been waiting for this one to come out, I’m happy to let you know it’s finally here. As always, feel free to drop me a line with some feedback.

Right now I’m in San Francisco doing an intensive private training seminar with Barry Eisler, which is why I haven’t been updating my blog as much: I’m having too much fun teaching Barry how to beat up innocent Belgians. But as soon as I get back, I can focus 100% on a few other projects:
- The knife book. It’s been a whole lot more difficult to get real life stories from people than I had anticipated. That’s why it’s been taking so long to get this project going: it’s hard to see the forest if all the trees aren’t in view yet. Be that as it may, I’m going to proceed with mapping everything out so I can set up the skeleton of the book. Once that is done, the writing can begin. So if any of you are still interested in contributing to this one, please read this post and get in touch with me soonest.
- The newsletter. This one has been in the works for a while now but it takes a lot of preparation to get it right. Which is my goal, to give a lot of value instead of sending you some crappy newsletter that nobody wants to read. I have some ideas on that front and will start writing the series of newsletter posts as time permits. This might sound a bit non-committed but that’s not the case. The way I write, I need some inspiration along with sufficient creative energy and enough free time to end up with a good article. It’s especially the free time that has been in short supply these last six months. But I’m making some changes in my personal life to alter this so the newsletter should be ready in a little while.
- Seminars. I have two confirmed seminar dates for this year, one in May for next year that we’re hammering out the details for and a few more tentative ones that are still in the works. I’m looking forward to all of them as teaching is what I enjoy the most. I’ll announce all the details and dates soon. If you’re interested in hosting a seminar, contact me here and we’ll figure out the logistics.
