The meaning of the word SUTOGURE is to NEVER GIVE UP

Sensei Ricci discovered this word during his visit to Fukuoka, Japan in 2008.

He appreciated the meaning of the word and decided to dedicate this name to his first dojo.

After attending two full weeks of training under the supervision of many world champions in Japan's Fukuoka Perfecture, he has learned various training methods including: Stamina training, kumite training, and special champion training in the GYM.

These lived experiences gave Sensei Ricci the knowledge to improve his training, but most importantly he can now share his knowledge to help make the WKO Shinkyokushinkai stronger in NORTH-AMERICA.
