Hi there! I’m Renshi Julius Bjerrekær. I’ve come all the way from Denmark to live and work here in Texas. I’ve practiced Martial Arts for more than two (2) decades, competed in and won both national and international tournaments. Additionally, I competed at the full-contact, knock-down karate world championships five times and winning one silver medal and two bronze medals. I have gained experience as a tournament organizer, coach, referee, and official for more than a decade. I’m a 5th degree black belt, and a certified Karate and Krav Maga instructor. I have dedicated my life to the pursuit of excellence through martial arts training.
I’m also a scholar with a background in Physics and Sports Science, an international keynote speaker, and I am an international researcher in Differential Psychology. I specialize in cognitive assessment and stereotype accuracy with multiple peer-reviewed research articles published.
As the COO at Vortex Academy National Headquarters, my two (2) most important tasks are:
1. To develop new systems and implement them throughout our organization for the benefit of both our members and our team.
2. To support our franchisees around the country for their business, technology, and martial arts needs.
