Re: Who brought the Saito a.k.a. Iwama lineage to Europe?

Hi there,

In case of France, I think saito-method came from Patricia Guerri (Uchi deshi from 1985 to 1987/88), Philippe Voarino (not sure of the date, he started a few time after P.Guerri at Iwama), then Daniel Toutain who firstly attends a seminar of P.Guerri in France then going to a Saito's seminar in Italia and being introduced to Saito sensei by Paolo Corralini.

But introduction in France seems to be way after the first introduction in Europe.

Regards,
Nicolas
