“I cannot recommend Ichinen highly enough. Master Horst is an outstanding teacher. He explains techniques and the history so thoroughly. His knowledge and experience is vast.”
Andy Loudon
“No two evenings are the same and I always leave the dojo at the end of the evening feeling that I have learned something. My flexibility has improved, I’ve made new friends and I believe I am a calmer person. Master Horst allows you to push yourself but still learn at your own pace.”
Lawrence Malcolm Shillingford
“Ichinen is more than a club, it’s a family. Getting myself back into shape both physically and mentally has been hugely enjoyable. The spirit of the club really is a testament to Master Horst’s character.”
