How Triat’s Memory was Saved from Oblivion – Iron Game History – October, 1995

Triat’s method was perfect for the regeneration of the French nation, but the system was attacked by rivals after the great man’s death. Triat’s ideas then died out, and those who advocated ineffective methods of gymnastics seemed to gain acceptance. Happily, Providence did not permit that such knowledge would be lost to us, and I was the instrument chosen by it to research and relocate Triat’s work, to study it, to coordinate it, to revive it and to publish it in my magazines and my books with the plan to save Triat from oblivion and to make the great and consoling shadow of this apostle of man’s regeneration hover over the France of tomorrow.
