What People Say

Christoph Stangier"To me, Aikido Oberursel is connected to many positive emotions and experiences. Klaus is teaching the values of the traditional Japanese martial art aikido in a way that fits in our times. This goes beyond the motoric experience, it is a research of the unexpected in the movement, simultaneously a question and an answer. No matter how complex the task or how different the people involved, at Oberursel they will find the right environment to discover and to learn on many different levels. For this, and for the friendship with many high-ranking aikido teachers it is worth coming back here. And for sharing a laugh!"
