Guillaume Erart, 5th Dan Aikikai in Cambridge

20/21 June 2020

An interesting seminar to look forward to!

Guillaume Erard is a French biologist (B.Sc., PhD) and budo instructor living and working in Tokyo, Japan. He is the founder of the website GuillaumeErard.com and the associated YouTube Channel. He is the Assistant Secretary for International Affairs at Daito-ryu Aiki-jujutsu Wakimachi Hombu. Guillaume (born 1981) began practicing judo at the age of six. He then turned to Aikido at the age of fifteen, in the group led by AndrΓ© Nocquet, the first foreign uchi deshi of Ueshiba Morihei, the founder of Aikido. After completing high school, Guillaume moved to Britain (note: where he trained at our dojo), then to Ireland, to undertake scientific studies. This international experience has allowed him to train under many teachers in different aikido styles, including Aikikai, Yoshinkan and Iwama, as well as other martial arts such as Shotokan Karate and Systema. During this time, Guillaume became the pupil of Alan Ruddock and Henry Kono, two direct students of O Sensei. In 2005, Guillaume Erard met Philippe Gouttard and Christian Tissier, which substantially modified his practice. Guillaume Erard left Ireland in 2010 after obtaining his Ph.D. (Molecular Biology) from University College Dublin, moved to Tokyo, and is currently training at the Hombu Dojo of the Aikikai. Guillaume has also been practicing Daito-ryu Aiki-jujutsu for more than a decade. He started in Tokyo under the leadership of Kobayashi Kiyohiro, the General Manager of Takumakai and subsequently became the student of Chiba Tsugutaka, Honorary Director of Takumakai. He was appointed by Chiba Sensei as Assistant Secretary for International Affairs at his school, Daito-ryu Aiki-jujutsu Wakimachi Hombu.
