What can you say about Paris that hasn't already been said. 

Well how about Kyusho just experienced a great expansion in talented instructors.

Lets start with the instructors that taught these instructors... The great guys of Thonon; Patrick LeGauffre (Le Président), Loic Rebottier, Olivier Reginaud and Didier Michel.  These guys are early and ardent affiliates of the Kyusho International system and some of the highest leveled instructors in Europe.

Through more than a decade of hard training sessions, seminars, classes and grueling tests, they in turn began helping others learn this incredible body of knowledge and skill.

This years training was in Chelles hosted by Mohamed Abaoub just outside of Paris at the "Gymnase Henri Bianco".

With affiliates attending a special training on the more advanced KI curriculum on Friday evening to assure that KI affiliates remain more advanced and professional than those from other organizations.



Saturday and Sunday were open training with over 75 participants from all around France and Switzerland.

The training was dynamic and exhausting in the morning sessions and more experimental in the afternoon when fatigue was a factor.

At the end we also had a testing that enabled 11 French Affiliates worked to progress to PL-1 (Practitioner Level 1)....and we threw in a challenge.  As we moved into a much more advanced training and curriculum from past years we also recognized that many people had not worked it for long enough to be as proficient as needed for our standards.  So we worked them in the old curriculum, but also required a bit of the new as a challenge to them.  They stood to take that challenge and succeeded... this filming depicts old (public) not the new, along with the old final testing requirement of performing standing KO's.
