Shifu Fabio is an inspirational man: he demonstrates the greatest respect and passion for Martial Arts, irrespective of the specific style. He lives and breathes Martial Arts and welcomes others to celebrate and integrate the power and purity that Martial Arts can offer. His sheer determination and hard work is evident when you step into his hand-built world. He naturally unites the students with motivation and encouragement always pushing us to our unique and highest limits with mentally stimulating and physically challenging classes: the result is pure satisfaction and achievement. Even if it is extreme at times, the reward is so much greater. Over the past four years of training with him, my physical body totally transformed and chronic pain reduced.
