  • Seminar with Karl Ruben - 4 September 2019

    A sharp sword cuts effortlessly, and just as effortlessly should Aikido techniques be executed. At his seminar in Oberursel, Karl Ruben showed what challenges working with the wooden sword presents to both partners, and how this practice can be transferred to empty-handed Aikido techniques....

What People Say

Eric Steeves"A dojo is a place for encounters - with yourself and others. The most important thing is the connection. Aikido Oberursel is such a place, and therefore I am always looking forward to next visit. In just a very short time, Klaus Messlinger and the enthusiastic aikidokas from Oberursel have created one of the most active aikido schools in the whole Rhein-Main area. Our joint keikos attract aikidokas from up to 8 different dojos and various styles. In the openness and appreciative exchange you can sense true 'aikido-no-kami' (Japanese for 'aikido spirit'). I am very much looking forward to our next joint keiko!"
