YouTube: André Nocquet in 1990

Here's a video of Andr� Nocquet teaching in 1990:

Nocquet (1914-1999) was the first foreign uchi-deshi to Morihei Ueshiba. Prior to starting aikido, he studied Greco-Roman wrestling then jujutsu (with Moshe Feldenkrais) and judo with Mikonosuke Kawaishi in Paris. He first started aikido in France under Minoru Mochizuki in 1949 then left to study under Morihei Ueshiba in 1955 at 40 years of age. He left Japan in 1957 and received his 8th dan in 1985.

A full biography of Nocquet written by Guilllaume Erard can be found by clicking here.

What are your thoughts on the video?
