Three new films of O-Sensei - discovered in July 2014 (Part 1/3)
A few weeks ago, one of our dojo members came to the dojo with a CD containing a film. To my huge surprise, it was an un-seen-before film of founder of Aikido (Ueshiba Morihei O-Sensei).
Apparently, Yedidya who has a pottery studio was approached by one of his student (Ms. Carole Habib). Her father was a French Aikidoka who was an Air-France pilot and he made frequent flights to Tokyo. In those days, pilots used to stay for about 2 weeks in Japan before returning to France. So, he could practice Aikido at the Hombu Dojo where sometimes O-Sensei used to teach.

This film was discovered in Israel in 2014 by Ms. Carole Habib -
daughter of Pierre Holzacker - French Air France pilot who practiced Aikido with his wife Esther in France in the 1960'. Pierre and Esther Holzacker were students of the Late Tsuda Itsuo Sensei.
