Video/DVD: New film featuring O-Sensei
Posted 7/26/2014 11:50am [from Ze'ev Erlich]

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. Founder of Aikido Ueshiba Morihei O-Sensei Filmed in 1968 by Mr. Pierre Holzacker at Aikikai Hombu Dojo (Tokyo) Part 1/3: http://youtu.be/gr3Z5r26R2o 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. 2014 Masatake Dojo - Israel Aikikai
