André Nocquet

This series of new videos was filmed in Arcachon (Gironde) circa 1980 in the aim of producing an instructional video with master André Nocquet. Unfortunately, the final video was never completed because of the declining health of master Nocquet. I would like to thank the uke of André Nocquet, Mr Bernard Boirie (6th Dan) for allowing me to publish these videos.
