โ€œMichael Ormerodโ€™s online training is fun, motivating and deepens my understanding of Takemusu Aikido. For me, a perfect complement to training in my home dojo. In short: highly recommended.โ€

– Roland K. โ€“ GERMANY

โ€œThe classes given by Michael are a great addition to regular live classes. They stand on their own as the focus is on the use of the Takemusu Aikido weapons system, with an emphasis on being centered. The online classes have brought me in contact with international participants and the feeling I get from the classes is always positive. It is an honor to be part of this group.โ€
