New Information

At the end of 1977 Sensei Ricky left England to move in Sicily (Canicatti` AG), straightaway he started teaching Kyushindo Karate and forming the K.I.A. Kyushindo International Association.
At the beginning it was very difficult to introduce this Style of Karate in Italy in the major Martial Arts Federation.
The first Association of Karate to recognise Sensei Ricky’s grade was in Palermo, after he had to go through an exam in front of a commission.
After couple years of teaching in private clubs and Sports Centre in the province of Agrigento and \Caltanissetta,Sensei Ricky had the first generation of Black belts in Italy of Kyushindo Karate.
In the eighties the K.I.A. was affiliated with the F.I.A.M. (Federazione Italiana Arte Marziale) and W.A.K.O. (World Association of Kickboxing Organisations).
Again to be recognised 4thDAN in this style he had to go in front of another commission with teachers of different styles and Sensei Luciano Parisi said to Sensei Ricky what ever style you practise and you do it well that style is valid.

In the Karate Pass, Budo Pass or Record Book, there are dates, grades, photos and personal details.
The Karate Pass is not just an ID, but it is a piece of history representing the Path of a long career.

By experience, when you move into a different country or Karate Organisation, Association or Federation, many times it is very difficult to have the Grades recognised.
 Often you have to go through various exams in front of a committee, take part in Karate Seminars with Great teachers, to demonstrate your Karate skills.

In the last 40 years, Sensei Ricky has been recognised in the UK and ITALY from various National and International Organisations.
