I started practicing judo when I was 5 years old at my father’s dojo in Como, Italy. I grew to see my father practicing judo for 64 years (and counting, he started when he was 14 years old and he is now 79 and still practicing). This made me realize the importance of training in a traditional way to prevent long-term injuries. I received my black belt degree in 2003. As an adult I started appreciating more and more the mindfulness, moral and public health aspects of this fun discipline.
