Where did the old image galleries go?

The new General Data Protection Regulation is very strict when it comes to the publication of pictures with identifiable individuals on them. Our old 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

Hannah Olbrich"Aikido Oberursel fascinated me right from the beginning with the warm welcome I received from all members. Though I was only a beginner everybody practised with me and made me feel right at home. My cautious attempt at finding the right kind of sports for me came up with a winner: Aikido!"
