“Long years of training at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo
built the foundation of a marvelous skill!”
Christian Tissier gives a special demonstration at Aiki Expo 2005, shot behind closed doors, where he explains in clear detail an advanced series of techniques that take advantage of the “forgotten direction” in Aikido that bear his unmistakable trademark. Slow-motion sequences are also included to capture the nuances of the movements of this outstanding technician. Truly much food for thought for your personal training!
Christian Tissier, 7th dan, began Aikido as a boy in France in 1962. He spent eight years in Japan at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Tokyo training with many of the art’s top masters starting in 1969. On his return to his native France, he brought back a new kind of Aikido that soon captured the imagination of the Aikido world in his country and practitioners throughout Europe. Tissier is at present the leading figure in the FFAAA organization, one of France’s two large Aikido associations. He is the sole foreign instructor to have taught at the International Aikido World Congress in Tokyo.
