Abe sensei was also the second Aikido teacher after Mochizuki sensei to teach in France, in the early 1950s. He wrote the very first Aikido manual in French :

I have those two Aikido books by Tadashi Abe Sensei who gave two copies to Kenshiro Abbe Sensei who very kindly gave them to me, very rare and much treasured...I can't read French but there are many good photos
