JEAN-MARIE MILLEVILLE – HEAD & TEACHER OF THE DOJO
At the Kagami Biraki 2019 at the AIKIKAI Hombu Dojo in Tokyo, Jean-Marie Milleville was honoured with the 6th Dan.
He began training in 1990 at an aikido and kenjutsu dojo in Alsace.
Having growing rapidly enthusiastic about these two martial arts, he attended numerous seminars in France and Germany. At this time he met Christian Tissier Shihan (8th Dan), Michel Erb Shihan (7th Dan) and Paul Matthis (6th Dan).
Paul Matthis and Michel Erb quickly became aikido and kenjutsu Jean-Marie Milleville’s teachers and he attended many of their seminars.
Another milestone in Jean-Marie’s Aikido education was set when he first encountered the internationally recognized Aikido and Kenjutsu Master Christian Tissier Shihan (8th Dan). Tissier’s instruction had already shaped a generation of remarkably well-trained Aikidokas and kenjutsu experts. Jean-Marie sought to still further complete his Aikido and his Kenjutsu by attending workshops taught by Master Saotome (8th Dan).
Jean-Marie works now with aikido and kenjutsu teachers Michel Erb and Pascal Guillemin 6th Dan.
Today Jean-Marie Milleville teaches passionately in his own dojo, in Berlin. He practices an Kenjutsu style that distinguishes itself through movements that are dynamic and technically precise.
