Karate Master, personal trainer and sports manager. Born in 1958, I started practicing karate in 1987, and pursued the 1st DAN in 1993. The following year, I qualified as a karate coach. For 12 years, from 2003 to 2012, I had been a member of the National Technical Committee of FESIK & DA as a trainer of the federation coaches and defined the curriculum and grading programme. From 2007 to2008 and in 2014, I had the honour to train the Italian FESIK national team of kata.
