A French league title (1993) and a Coupe de France (1994) in volleyball, European champions (1995) and French champions (1997) with the judokas, and numerous boxing titles as well as the three world championship belts for Kahid Rahilou (super lightweight 1997), Julien Lorcy (light heavyweight, 1998) and Hacine Cherifi (heavyweight, 1998).

His most memorable success was the French title for Paris Saint-Germain Racing Basket, clinched on 15 May 1997, and the club's only such national crown to this day.
