What People Say

Karl Ruben"Aikido Oberursel is a place of overwhelming warmth and enthusiasm for aikido practice. The atmosphere on the tatami clearly reflects how much love for the detail the teacher is conveying to his students. It is no coincidence that this young dojo has grown so fast in such a short time: Klaus is one of the best-organised, enthusiastic and open-minded aikido teachers that I have encountered so far. I am not surprised that this attracted a group of likely-minded and congenial people. It is a dojo that I can recommend to anybody interested in aikido practice."
