Info about aikido near Paris 1978-79?

to the aiki-web community:

I was in France from 1978-1979. I was living as an exchange student in Bourg-la-Reine, and I was taking aikido in a town just west...maybe Sceaux or Bagneux? For years I have been trying to remember the name of the Sensei who instructed at a public health club there. He was pretty high ranking, 4th dan at least, andI believe he was part of the Union National d"Aikido. This was my introduction to Aikido!

I lost any paperwork that might help my memory years ago.

Does anyone know who this might have been from 30 years back?

Thanks
Henry Brown

Hi Henry
Have you tried the search engine of www.ffab-aikido.fr or http://www.aikido.com.fr/cadre.asp?f...upratiquer.htm ? They list pretty much all the aikido clubs, maybe you can search in the department 92 (around Bourg-la Reine) and you will hopefully remember the name when you see it.

All the best,
Anne.

Thanks Anne, but those sites were not really helpful - - this is so long ago that the club doesn't seem to exist anymore (likewise, as far as I understand, l'Union National d'Aikido). So I'm really looking for an old-timer Paris resident who remembers that far back.
