Testimonial

Chris

I first met Istvan when I joined the Lancashire Aikikai in 2016 and quickly found him to be a wonderful teacher and training partner. Getting to know him, and being lucky enough to experience his Aikido, has fundamentally influenced my own journey in more ways than I care to mention. I can always count on Istvan as a constant source of support, guidance and inspiration; he is a true deshi of Mimuro Sensei and a credit to Budō.
