Shihan Andre-Jacques Serei: Founder of the Serei Defense System

Born in France, André-Jacques immigrated to Canada with his family in 1958, along with his brother Pascal. Both boys were sent to boarding school for several years after their arrival in Canada. Initiated to judo at the age of 7, André-Jacques was a lonely child and teenager who was given to fighting, although he was not quarrelsome or vindictive. His motto as a youth, no doubt inspired by his extensive reading, was “Red and black, death and blood”. 

Today, after more than 50 years of martial arts practice, André-Jacques has the following ranks:

Aiki Ju-Jitsu- Black Belt – 7thdan (Nintai Ryu)

Aiki Ju-Jitsu Black Belt – 6thdan (International Budo Federation)
