my name's andrea and i usually practise Aikido in Imperia not so far to the border with france (50 km to mentone).
If you are really interested in the life of Tadashi Abe (but i hope you are more interested in his teaching)you should contact Mr. Pierre Chassang who lives in Cannes. He is the ancient aikidoka in Europe on the tatami again(he's 81 years old). He rechived teacher like Tadashi Abe , Nakazono and the new giapan generation like Tamura.
Last year he wrote a book in your language that we translated in italian as well (we are waiting for the publishing)If you want you can find out more information in this site:
Further exist two franch books about aikido writted in collaboration with Tadashi Abe (in limited number).
If you can't contact Pierre Chassang e-mail me I'll give you his telephon number.
sincerely yours
andrea anzalone
