Born in May 1948

I start Budo by Karate Shotokan in 1963.

Along with the practice of Karate I started studying Taikiken in 1987 by Jean Luc Lesueur Sensei and Jan Kallenbach Sensei by seminar in France and in Amsterdam.

Between 1974 and 1976 I went two times 6 month to Japan to improve my Karate, but also study the sword in the school of Omori Sogen Sensei (Kashima Shinden Jiki Shinkage-Ryu), Jo Jutsu at Shimizu Takaji Sensei (Shindo Muso-Ryu).

From 2001/2002 until 2003 I would do many trips to Japan, to settle there on a consistent basis from 2004 to 2011. During the entire period I stayed in Japan, I studied in the Dojo Michio Shimada Sensei Tokyo Shinjuku (2-3 times in week) and meet many Taikiken Sensei (Amano, Kashimura, Sato Seiji died the last year).

During this long period, I give courses Kenpo and Tai Chi Chuan to the Japanese in Tokyo and Yokohama (I was living in Yokohama).

In April 2006 I created my school Budo at Yokohama: Seishinkan Kenpo International.

In Japan I also received a teaching of  Kyudo in the Dojo Hachimangu Shinto Shrine in Kamakura and 3 years of Shodo in Yokohama (By women Sensei).

I return to France in 2011, Jan Kallenbach Sensei called me Taikiken Renshi in June.

From 2011 I’m back in France and I 'm based in the South West of France, at the foot of the Pyrenees where I built my private Dojo and teach essential the Taikiken and Tai Chi Chuan/Kiko.

As soon as I arrived in Japan in 2004, I stop completely Karate and devoted myself exclusively to Taikiken.

My current Budo status in France is:  Teacher:

Taikiken Renshi, Tai Chi Chuan & Qigong/Kiko with a qualification of State of French 2nd Degree Diploma of State and Dan 5. in Karate recognized by the French Federation of Karate and Associated Discipline.

Since my return to France I endeavor to develop the Taikiken in a spirit of confidentiality and quality.

My current group is up in France twenty students. I also develop since 2015 a group in Italy in Florence. New people in Italy are interested in my teaching. New groups are expected soon in Genoa, Trieste and Rome. I am also in touch with Slovenia and Croatia.

Since I left Japan, I always talk Relations a Sensei 3rd generation, this is Shimamura Naotake Sensei: Renshi, Godan. Leader from the Tochigi Taikiken Branch by Oyama City (120 km North from Tokyo). He came to lead a seminar at in my Dojo the last year.

For obscure reasons the relations with Shimada Sensei ruptured!

I'm going to Japan in June/July 2016 for 3 weeks to Shimamura Sensei. Or I'll certainly meet Iwama and Yoshimichi Sato Sensei.
