Pascal Durchon came to our country  for first the time in 1990 together with Christian Tissier. He has come to Poland for many years at sensei Bazylko‘s invitation. Led 28 seminars in Warsaw, including the last seminar in January 2013. Sensei Bazylko and his disciples often stayed at his dojo in Eragny and enjoyed his hospitality during stays at the dojo of Christian Tissier in Vincennes.

Sensei Bazylko could participate through his mediation in a number of seminars and other relevant events from the world of aikido, held in France. Due to Pascal Durchon‘s invitation he was a participant, and also a co-teacher of preparatory seminars for people who applied for 3-4 dan. He could participate in many discussions of persons with superior technical skills. Pascal Durchon and instructors working with him invited sensei Bazylko to teach at departamental seminars in France. He has the honor to offer special kenjutsu classes for Pascal Durchon‘s best disciples. Sensei Bazylko‘s experience and skills would be now much smaller without his help.
