Christian Wiederanders

Welcome on my personal page

Welcome to

My name is Christian Wiederanders and I was born in Speyer in 1972. For over 40 years now, I have been involved in the Japanese martial art of the samurai and see this as an ideal balance to my everyday professional life as an IT business solutions manager and executive and its challenges.

I have been involved in IT since 1995 and in 2001 I was already involved in my first projects as an interface coordinator up to project and service manager with technical and disciplinary leadership of small and larger teams.

Personally, my experiences in the Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido association and club environment have also helped me a lot in professional tasks. In the many years since I have been involved in IT/OT projects, I have always noticed parallels and similarities.

I am the founder, managing director and training director of Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido and holder of the 7th DAN. In the footsteps of the samurai! Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido is based on the teachings of Miyamoto Musashi, his Niten-Ichi-Ryu-Kenjutsu (two-sword school) and the teachings of Gorin-No-Sho (5 elements: earth, water, fire, wind and emptiness).

For me, the decisive factor is continuous education and training, whether as a sports coach, club board member or IT/OT management, as well as long-term strategic development – whether in the club or in the company. It is important to make the right decisions and to adapt to changing requirements.

On this website I would like to introduce myself and give you the opportunity to get to know me better. If I have aroused your interest, please feel free to contact me.

Christian Wiederanders, IT Manager Service & Infrastructure


IT Expert

Expert in management functions in the IT/OT Infrastructure and Network environment – competence for over 25 years.

Many years of experience as a project and service manager, especially in the IT/OT Infrastructure & Network sector. The expert has experience in tendering procedures, budgeting, customer consulting, solution design as well as analysis and evaluation of customer requirements. This includes coordination of internal and external IT service providers, support in defining and implementing IT infrastructure strategies and defining infrastructure standards. Process management, change management and transformation are also part of the competences.



Trainings – Experienced, trained and certified

A world champion does not necessarily have to be a good trainer. For training and education, I have obtained a broad education with certification. This includes the IHK trainer certificate, IHK train-the-trainer, DOSB trainer certificate, DOSB club manager and numerous DOSB exercise instructor licences B in the health and prevention sector. A good trainer is self-critical and measures his performance not by the best but by the worst student. Also, there are different groups in age and gender and not everyone is comfortable training with children. Children are not always easy, but honestly. Honestly, what could be nicer if after the training the child goes home with a smile and comes back in the next training. Of course, there are also limits to what can be done. Here, too, it is important to constantly train and further develop oneself and to prove one’s skills with certifications.


Martial arts

In the footsteps of the samurai and rediscover old ways. Tradition, life path, health, prevention and martial arts are offered by Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido.

Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido is a holistic movement concept and is based on the historical teachings of the Japanese samurai, which we have harmonised with modern psychomotor approaches. Individual body awareness is promoted through varied movement experiences.

Competence for more than 25 years


As early as 1994, I was already leading the first team as a manager in the German Air Force (Bundeswehr), where I was from 1993 to 2005 and had attended numerous training and further education courses in the field of staff management. I also have experience, training and certification from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the DOSB. However, I learned leadership as early as 1991, when I founded the first registered Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido club in Limburgerhof, where I am still the chairman today. Until today, I have been in charge of departments and teams ranging in size from 4 to 160 employees.

A leader is characterised by . . .

No matter if it is a team, a crew or a management, to lead something requires structural work, intelligence, clear goals, empathy and intelligence. A manager should strive to constantly develop his or her skills. Here, social competence plays a much more important role than technical competence. It is imperative that a leader makes decisions, at the risk that the decision may be wrong, rather than not making a decision at all.

Manager (Lead)

Leadership - lead by example, structure, organise

Strategic management combines the development, via planning, to the implementation of defined goals and is significantly responsible for the direction of an organisation. Strategic management is defined within a period of two to five years. Strategic management plays a very important role, especially for corporate management. Here there are overlaps of the topic with issues, marketing, product policy and the importance for the stakeholders of the company.

Strategic management

Strategic management - no strategy means no future!

A Business Solutions Manager conducts analysis to propose practical solutions. Solutions Consultants drive the development and innovation of business solutions and digital transformations and consult with clients and prospects to understand their business needs and problems. Solutions Consultants classify client needs and identify opportunities to deliver business results and develop innovative solutions. This is done in collaboration with field, product, industry and digital service design teams in a pre-sales environment. My experience in service management, operations management and numerous IT projects, has greatly enhanced my assessments over the last few years to achieve a good outcome for all parties.


Analyse well - plan well = good result

Project management is defined by its uniqueness, its temporal limitation. Project management as a management task is divided into project definition, project implementation and project completion. The goal is that projects are planned and controlled correctly, that risks are limited, opportunities are used and project goals are achieved qualitatively, on time and within budget. Time in particular is a major challenge in order to complete the project on time.

I have been involved in projects for many years, but it was only when I took part in the IHK Project Manager 2012 that I realised how important it is to know all the components of project management and to apply them correctly.


Project management - not everything is a project

The individual processing of business management problems in a company is called consulting. This is often found in consulting organisations. The aim is to offer solutions to the companies concerned that are looking for advice. The job titles are often preceded by the term: business, technical, IT or managing consulting are also known as „corporate consulting“!

Management Consultant

Management Consultant - management consultancy redefined

Service management consists of more than one person. It starts with good management and is characterised above all by good teamwork. Recognising strengths and using them accordingly and not thinking that everyone can do everything. The new Remote in particular does not present new problems, but opportunities. This opportunity, combined as a hybrid in „remote“ and „on-site“, improves flexibility with sensible use. In the last three years, I have organised and managed a medium-sized team with up to 20 employees.

Due to my experiences during my time in the German army, in IT companies and associations, I was able to organise a professional service. In addition, I was trained and certified in REFA time and remuneration management, work system design and data and time management in 1996.


Service Management - Starts with Good Governance

A „Service Delivery Manager Team“ is composed of experienced Service Managers, Project Managers/Coordinators and Senior Consultants and thus provides an experienced and communicative strong interface of customer care and control of internal processes for the delivery of services both internally and with external providers. Proactive communication thus reduces service failures and escalations. The continuous coordination of all sides optimises the process flow and leads to customer satisfaction. Open and honest exchange, as well as recognising strengths and weaknesses, are part of being a good employee in this team. The goal is agile, solution-oriented and not problem-oriented work. Over the years, this has ensured a satisfied service for medium-sized companies through to large industrial enterprises.

Service Delivery

Lives from good and honest communication

The difference between a company and an association is the tax law and that in an association the activity is usually carried out on a voluntary basis. Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido is organised and structured in several clubs through a German umbrella organisation. Here, the necessary knowledge of association law is indispensable. A strategy and the right marketing is necessary in order to align the offer in the clubs according to the demand. The activities on the boards of sports clubs are becoming increasingly complex and place higher and higher demands on those responsible. This requires specially trained and qualified people. The training to become a club manager imparts basic knowledge in all essential areas of contemporary and future-oriented club management. This includes

  • Organisation of clubs and associations
  • Sports development
  • Public sports administration
  • Funding opportunities
  • Tax, legal and insurance issues
  • Financing the work of the association
  • Leadership and communication
  • Staff recruitment and motivation
  • Marketing and sponsorship
  • Public relations

Between 2009 and 2011, I attended the training programme for club managers C and B and passed the licensing exams. This has to be renewed every four years through further training. Since 2012 I have also been advising clubs and from 2015 to 2017 I accompanied the project Sportverein 2020.

Transformation of management - use of knowledge in the association and company!


On the trail of the Samurai



Modern martial art, with its ingrained Japanese tradition of the Samurai enables you through Japanese culture and history to expand your own horizon and find strength in everyday life.

Life philosophy

Life philosophy

To live the seven virtues of the Samurai in training as well as outside of it, simplifies a respectful interaction with each other in daily life and within our society.



A healthy mind in a healthy body – with age-appropriate exercises, maintain or improve mobility and achieve a feeling for your body , which is reducing risk factors and improves well-being.



The best fight is the one you do not have to fight. Yet, a self-assured manner and assertiveness are a first step to be able to avert conflicts and master and withstand challenges in your daily life better.

Martial Art

Martial Art

Rediscover old ways, through traditional martial arts with and without weapons in the style of the Japanese Samurai. This is Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido – “The way of the Samurai in the style of the dragon”

This style is based on the exercise with traditional weapons, weaponless training and history and culture of Japan. It follows the theories of the five elements and the martial art, originated and developed by Miyamoto Musashi, the legendary Japanese Sword fighter.

A martial art, which improves individual self-confidence, stimulates health and trains character through the philosophy and tradition of the Samurai. Self-assured appearance and assertiveness, also preventive, joins tradition and modern life in this martial art. The personal development of body and mind independent of gender, age and physical conditions, is offered without participating in tournaments.

The characteristics of this art are high quality, suitable in everyday life, as well as the pursuit of perfection, which are continuously developed and awarded this concept repeatedly. Numerous social activities, also in nature, complete the concept.

In summary is “the way of the Samurai in the style of the dragon” in Japanese the Tatsu-Ryu-Bushido.

# Tatsu = dragon

# Ryu = style/school

# Bushido = the way of the warrior (Samurai)
