We invite you to contact us, but would like to point out that due to lack of time we do not answer further questions concerning our regular training (e. g. about our prices, or about personal suitability) by email or telephone, but only directly at the end of a completed free trial session (which itself does not require an advance reservation via this contact form). Further information via email or telephone are restricted to our special offers (private classes, kids and vouchers).
By the way: From January 2022, our group will be called Ryuko Dojo. In simple terms, this means Tiger and Dragon Dojo and stands for indivisible, opposing and yet interrelated phenomena similar to the Yin and Yang of Chinese philosophy. The tiger stands for direct, energetic, spontaneous action, the dragon for indirect, deliberate, tactical action.
“Recently I have started to understand this much more deeply. In and Yo are connected. Men and women are connected. Life and death are connected. Heaven and earth are connected. Light and dark are connected. Omote and ura are connected. Soke and generation after generation of teacher and students are also connected….
In my case I have reached this point simply through my connection with Takamatsu Sensei and the connection with my family.
In the modern world, differences in people’s consciousness, religion, and thinking are causing much disorder, and the disorder is increasing. I believe the path to resolving this situation is “connection.”
