“The best way to get to know a person is to meet them. “
Here are some fragments of who I am, what I’ve done and where I’m heading…
I personally call myself a “sculptor of the movement”. I love to know and find out what we can do with our body, through a conscious and analytical study. Born in 1987, in a small town in the province of Milan (Sesto San Giovanni). I start taking my first steps in martial arts in the 1995 (initially in Karate) and from that moment, until today, I am the engine of my life at 360 °. As a “hungry” acquaintance, I experimented with different methods and systems – Kick Boxing, Mma, Jkd, Sanda – but it was in 2000 that I knew the world of traditional Chinese martial arts. A “world” that still accompanies me today. The first “meeting” was with the Shaolin Culture, a path that lasted from about 2000 to 2015. In 2016 I travel to China, staying at the An Family Kung Fu & Traditional Culture Academy -in Dezhou, Shandong – studying with Shifu An Jian Qiu and Da Shifu An De Sheng. Unique experience that introduced me to art, which I still teach with dedication and passion – the Baji Quan 八极拳 – boxing of the 8 extremes/polarity. Disclosing, researching and discovering the Baji Quan, today is my main interest. Deepening what influenced baji and how Baji influenced other methods, looking for the various points of connection and roots. Between Tradition and Evolution. Between yesterday, today and tomorrow.
IN THE ART OF MOVEMENT
The movement and art of the body is what has always fascinated and interested me. Parallel to martial arts, I collaborated with dancers and artists of all kinds, in the most varied contexts, such as: TV, Operas, Gala, Academies of Cinematography, Dance Academies and much more. To name a few of the most important works : I transported the expression of the free-body movement to X-Factor 12, working in the cast of the artists who accompanied the singers in the competition. He took part in the casting of the Opera “Il cerchio della Luna” in Vercelli, with the presence of the actor Luca Ward. This path allowed me to get to know my body and mind through other approaches and visions.

THE PATH OF INNER GROWTH
Not just physical, not just movement. The martial path ,with the passage of time, has become a transformative alchemy between inside and outside. A “change” not only physical, but well human. The transformative way was, almost immediately, the ring that united my journey inside the Kung Fu Wushu. A path that I still develop today, I elaborate and try to understand the many aspects, thanks to the support of mentors and guides in the field. Becoming my practice “laboratory” myself. A process that I also introduced for my students.
MISSION THROUGH TEACHING
Today my mission is to guide people in a process of “destructuring” themselves. A growth capable of touching the physical, mental, emotional and daily or professional life plan. What characterizes the transmission method is the “wire” that connects everything, every single aspect. Working outside, and then transforming the interior and consequently the exterior. That’s why I love this phrase, “Turning lead into gold.”
