VINCENZO-GIARDINA

In 1977 I started to learn Kyushindo Karate in Italy (Sicily, Canicatti` AG)
 following my father Sensei Ricky (Diego-Giardina).

When i was a child I discovered the benefits that this discipline
can give to everybody.
The more I practise this style and more I understand it’s not only
about kicking and punching but for me is a way of life.

We all know there are many sports which can help to have a healthy
 life and for me Karate it’s a complete Sport plus it has got the
 benefit of self-defence, these two qualities together helps a lot to
keep me fit and to build up my confidence.

My opinion this discipline is a very good natural medicine, because many
times after a difficult and stressful day, when I finish my Karate lesson the body and the mind
feel relaxed and stress relieved.
Between 1977 and 1996 living in Italy I always followed
Sensei Ricky and in England from 1997 till present.
When I was living in Italy being part of K.I.A. group and a
member of F.IA.M., W.A.K.O. and after U.N.I.B. and F.E.K.D.A.,
it took me nearly 20 years to reach the grade of black belt 4thDAN.

Moving back to England I also carried on with my Karate teaching in various North Somerset council sports centre and training under Sensei Ricky in Bristol.

Being a member of British Karate Association in 1999 i took part in the B.K.A. Open Championships with Greg Clarke and Kevin Price in the team kata competition, winning the 1st place in Oldham in Manchester, this victory was not only a great feeling to win the gold but mainly a positive result of hard work of all the team and thanks for all the experience and advice from Sensei Ricky in every Single Karate lesson.

In April 2000 after a Karate seminar in Weston Super Mare I had the honour to receive the 5thDAN from Claudio Pastore General Secretary of F.E.K.D.A.
Every year my self with my Dad Sensei Ricky ,we go to Italy and visit the K.I.A. group in Sicily to train together in Sports Centre or in private Clubs.
 Every chance is a good reason to train together from a normal Karate lesson to a big seminary.

 A FEW WORDS TO ALL VIEWERS OF THIS SITE

From my personal experience, I would like to say: the path of life and the path of Karate are very similar in many ways.

In life and in Karate, nothing is easy or free and we all know it is only with hard work it is possible to achieve results.

From a young age, we start going to school. We get older and start going to work. We will have met respectful people, and for some reason, even if we never do anything bad or wrong, we will have met disrespectful people.
This is similar in the Karate path.

Of course! A human being has many feelings and jealousy is one of the negative ones, which make some people say or do ignorant things. I have no intention or time to waste for these sorts of people.

In Life and in Karate, i consider myself lucky.
In both, I am surrounded by friendly and respectful people.
It is a privilege to work with all my Karate friends, and with this occasion I would like to say thank you very much for all your cooperation.

A BIG REI TO ALL FROM VINCE.
