Our experiences with Tadashi Abe Sensei were brief. Pierre Chasang Sensei was Abe Sensei first French student in 1952. I have not been in touch with Chasang Sensei for several years. I know that `Dazzler` who posts on here was/is in contact with Chasang Sensei.
Co-author of `Positive Aikido`
Mike Narey and possibly Steve Beacham along with Darren are the most likely guys to know Pierre Chasang.I met him years ago but I am not in contact with him.Perhaps there are some B.J.C. guys , or L.J.S. guys/Robin Otani/ Tomio Otani [Grange Farm days?? who remember Abbe Sensei? Cheers, Joe.
