Interview with Franck Noël, 21/06/2022, Dojo de la Roseraie Toulouse

If you have ever asked yourself some of these questions, you’ve come to the right place to find answers.

Gaston Nicolessi’s October 2018 Aikido seminar in Rosny-sous-Bois, near Paris, organized by Arthur Frattini and the Codep93 federal committee. Gaston designed his seminar upon the notions of extension and absorption for both body techniques and jo.

A radio interview about Gaston’s heartfelt vision of Aikido on Radio Campus Toulouse (Nov. 29th 2018)… in French :-).

Aikido is a japanese martial art that strikes with its aesthetic movement and social ambition. Ideally located in Toulouse, in newly renovated premises, accessible by metro, the Dojo de la Roseraie is open every day, at lunch time or after work, for quality aikido classes, taught by state-qualified teachers. Classes open to all, children (from 8 years) and adults (from 15 years).
