In 1985, regular Jodo training is held at the Aiki-club of Cannes. In 1986, a little group of passionates decide to create the Jodo Club de Cannes (today: Jodo Club de Côte-d'Azur). That very year, he meets Pascal Krieger at the annual gasshuku of Les Iles de Lérins. This meeting decides him to get more involved in Jodo.
Since then, Gilles attended most of the Jodo Gasshuku Another meeting is going to have a big impact on his practice. It is when he met NISHIOKA Sensei in Hawaii in 1994. He discovers a "Great" little man with boundless generosity.
