Where did the old image galleries and blog articles go?

The General Data Protection Regulation which became effective in May 2018 is very strict with regard to the publication of pictures with identifiable individuals on them. Some of our older galleries may not have fully complied with these rules, so it will take some time to fill this website with life again. Please accept our apologies.

For the same reason, we have removed most of the old blog entries.

What People Say

Stefanie Kösling"For me, aikido is a way to research the inner and outer world, to connect with life. I find it very helpful to have a welcoming space that offers respect and is open for discoveries. I feel appreciated in my home dojo where I first met Klaus, and I very much like practising in Oberursel, too. It is great being a part of this group. Thank you!"
