I haven't regretted joining Ikoma. Do note that the teachers do understand English even if they don't speak it in class. In the Basic levels, you can still ask them questions in English and they will reply in Japanese. In addition, the grammar and vocabulary notes have English and Chinese translation.
In any case, there should be minimal use of English as you progress so whether the teacher speaks English or not should not be an issue.
The teachers are told to speak in Japanese even if they understand and can speak in English. its better for the students that way.
And the notes are good, especially N1/N2 notes, with good translation.
