Work History


"Sportissima", Lugano

besides teaching the art.

I used to teach in Barcelona, but it is in Switzerland (Lugano) where I worked for the renowned national organization "Migros School", for which I also ran and organized the tai chi, kenjutsu and zen courses.
As to kickboxing I raised some good students one of whom, a young very promising woman, is now preparing for competitions in Italy and in Spain.

I also teach kenjutsu and iaijutsu, the ancient art of Japanese fencing practiced by the samurais, which I began in 1997.
I am the authorized chief instructor for the whole of Switzerland. I was authorized by my sensei and founder of 25 years old Wa Rei Ryu ( and am the chairman of Wa Rei Ryu Switzerland (
As a cultural association linked to Japanese culture, Wa Rei Ryu holds seminars, conferences and takes part to public exhibitions such as the Japan Matsuri (Switzerland) or the famous Manga Festival (Barcelona).

Zen meditation courses
I studied Buddhist meditation and psychology (Zen Rinzai, Vipassana) and ran meditation session and lessons for reduced groups genuinely interested in this ancient method of self-exploration and growth as well as for martial artists interested in the way of the Zen as a part of the Bushido. I normally held 1 two-hour session on a weekly basis.
I am a firm believer in the power of a centered and positive mind, an objective for which Zen can do marvels.

I have published 3 books on chi kung as a complementary therapy as well as a powerful hygienic practice, one on tai chi and three on meditation and the proper attitude to contain or resolve mental discomfort.
I also wrote a book on legitimate self-defense exploring the merging concepts of self-defense and legally approved self-defense.
At present I am working on a book on movement, both mental and physical, and its beneficial effects on health and the slowing of the aging process.
