    What does iWT do differently?

    I started practicing the martial arts in the late 1950s.

    The grandiose 40th anniversary seminar last year was an event with many superlatives. The huge number of participants broke every previous record. One spectacular highlight was followed by the next. Whether the extensive range of seminars with numerous visiting instructors or the accompanying events, all those who were there agree that it might only be topped by the 50th anniversary celebrations!
    But even though there is no anniversary to celebrate this year, the 2017 International Seminar is set to become a very special event as well!
