Our teacher's teachers

Pascal Durchon (5th Dan Aikikai)

Pascal's website


Pascal has been an extrordinary influence on the development of the Brighton Aikikai, and the aikido of it's practicioners and teachers.  The teachers have come and gone, but Pascal has continued, for almost 30 years now, to visit Brighton and humour us and inspire and move us with his technical skill, kindness and inspiring presentations on the principles of aikido.  This November he visits South Devon Aikikai!

Christian Tissier (7th Dan Aikikai)

Cercle Tissier


One of the most influential aikidoka alive today.  The technical director of the FFAAA, with a membership of around 35,000 practioners, it is difficult to overstate his impact on the world of aikido.  A personal student of Yamaguchi Sensei for over 30 years, he studied Aikido, Kick Boxing and Kenjutsu in Japan for seven years before returning to France to develop the FFAAA.
