Advisor to the City of Geneva, he was the negotiator with the leaders of the SDK of the time for the acceptance and the attribution of the present dôjô.
Gaston DE HALLER
One of the founders of our club. Jûdôka (1st Dan), an excellent technician, he had the responsibility of training the beginners for whom he was a little father and teacher at the same time.
Kendôka was passionate, he held the section at arm's length and assumed the interim between Me Kondô and Me Watanabe (Susumu).
Erick Moisy has been passionate about Kyudo since 1982. He studied the basics for 10 years before going to Japan. He became the pupil of Furusawa Hiromu, Hanshi 8th dan, to whom he returned every two years.
Duc Hung NGUYEN
P. Ochsner and P. Krieger had noticed this little man during their stay in Japan. Excellent 5th dan, Hachihei was the first jûdôka temporarily invited to the SDK. Very endearing, he was able to show that a jûdôka of small size had all his chances.
Maurice Penseyres is one of the pioneers of martial arts in Switzerland and was one of Mochizuki's first pupils. In the mid-1960s, he studied aikido and karate with Me Mochizuki. He then pursued the study of the yoseikan budo from its inception in 1975, which it develops in Switzerland from that moment.
Maurice Penseyres has created sections of yoseikan budo in Valais, in the canton of Vaud and in Geneva. He has also been instrumental in the technical development of yoseikan budo weapons and protective gear as well as competition regulations.
Member of the SDK of the first hour. Judoka (4th Dan), he was mostly concerned with the children of whom he was very much beloved. He was also a national referee.
Residing in Geneva for professional reasons, Mr. Watanabe, generous and devoted, has made the Kendô section what it is today. It is with regret that the club has returned to Japan.
