Tadashi Abe & Aritomo Murashige

Dear all,

I like to do (totally informal…) historical lineage research on the tradition of aikido in which I practice. I am looking for information on Tadashi Abe and Aritomo (Aritoshi) Murashige Senseis, the former a teacher of André Nocquet Sensei, the later possibly also. There seems to be little to no information available about them, apart from scattered websites in French.

Both were students of O-Sensei and taught in France (and Belgium) in the fifties and early sixties, "pre-Tamura". Yes, I have already done Google searches and looked at the more obvious online resources --what I would be most interested in is whether there is any written material that you know of, in Western languages, in old Judo, Aikido or other MA books, or the like, or maybe less obvious, possibly longer texts on the web?

All help is appreciated
