Mario has been doing Martial Arts for 40 years. He commenced his training in 1976 with
Merv Oakley Goju Kai. Oakley brought Karate to Sydney back in the sixties and Mario spent 26 years training with him.

This is where he learnt the Art and developed his passion for Karate. Mario wanted more, he had a desire to become the chief of his own Dojo and continue his training linked directly with Fujiwara Hanshi in Japan. With this in mind he became a member of Shuseikan  and Seiwakai international.

Mario had already been teaching and had many fine students who have remained with him and continue to train and develop their skills.

Mario is  currently ranked 5th Dan Seiwakai and 5th Dan JKF GojuKai.
