I am a 50 years old French and I spent most of my life in Paris.
I pursued studies in biology and, as a researcher, I worked for the Pasteur Institute, in Paris, and RIKEN institute, in Kobe.

I started practicing martial arts in 1989 with Sensei Richard Lee, himself a student of Sensei Richard Kim. Today, I hold a 5th dan degree in Karate, Kobudo and Tai Chi Chuan.
I was already teaching while in Paris and, when I arrived in Kobe in 2007, I decided to open various classes. I teach Japanese and foreign students, children or adults,.
I am doing my best to learn and improve my Japanese but, sometimes, I still need to speak English during my lessons.
Finally, since I arrived in Japan, I've had the chance to learn Kyudo.
