In conclusion, we want to share two exciting answers during an interview:
Do you have any dreams or goals in karate or your private life?
Of course, my mission is to train the kids to become good competitors and good people so that karate can develop. If somebody among my students shows more zeal in training, I try to give him more workload and a unique approach so that in the future, he may be able to win some significant competitions.
Do you have a favorite fighter?
I would name Francisco Filho because I consider him one of the strongest fighters of Kyokushin. He achieved a lot: he became the world champion in Kyokushin, passed 100 bouts, and succeeded in K1.
