ANTONINO CERTA, DAITO-RYU SHIHAN
MY HISTORY IN JAPANESE MARTIAL ARTS
I begun studying martial arts at the age of 15, studying simultaneously aikido (about 30 years under the senior Japanese European masters of that time, and karate under Hiroshi Shirai sensei. I then studied kendo for 5 years, in a competitive way.
I subsequently begun regular training in Japan over long periods in Abashiri, Hokkaido, as an uchi-deshi in the Daitokan dojo and later in the Nakagawa Ise Budokan dojo of Abashiri. I have studied with the best elderly students of Tokimune: Sano, Kato and Arisawa shihan. In Abashiri I have received the qualification of shihan.
