Taikiken - man between earth and heaven

documentary and learning method

About the project

"Man between earth and heaven"

In a world where everything is going too fast, where technology, overload and stress have replaced the contact of man with nature, it becomes essential to renew this link. The practice of the budo opens the way towards a harmonization of being with nature and gives him the tools to calmly follow the frantic pace of the modern world.

It's a documentary project and a method of technical learning about the martial art created by Kenichi Sawaï sensei; the Taikiken.  A Japanese martial art of Chinese obedience based on the use of internal energy.

This documentary between France and Japan  is made to discover this martial art in its principle and method as well as the actors who work to transmit the heritage left by Sawaï sensei. Its duration will be the documentary format is about 52 minutes.


Alain Stoll Sensei is the head of the organization Taikiken France. Every year he sends one or more of his pupils for a martial trip. This year it's Guillaume; self-taught videographer and member of the association, who leaves for fifteen days in Japan in June to meet great masters of the Japanese taikiken and to bring back the images that will be used to make this documentary.

The contact maintained between Japan and France is in good shape:

Several sensei have made the trip from Japan to come to animate courses on the hexagon and see or meet the masters and practitioners of europe. Theproduction of this documentary is motivated by this good relationship between France and Japan and wishes to seal these links by a joint participation around this project.

Passionate videographer of martial arts I wrote the scenario of this documentary proposed by A.Stolll Sensei with his collaboration.

Responsibility for almost the entire project has been entrusted to me (writing, shooting, editing and post-production). Armed with my SLR camera and a great motivation I prepare this first trip to Japan for several months to 'bring back a unique experience and quality images.

Realizing videos for several years for Taikiken France, this first project in documentary format is for me the opportunity to offer both the public and the initiates a journey into the world of authentic budo through the art of Sawaï Sensei of the Europe to the land of Samurai.
