In the 80s he made an initiation trip to South America,
practicing karate, living among local people in the way of local people,
thus developing a universal perspective.

of the teachers of the teachers in Argentina.

His fame was quick after some videos that he was asked to record in Europe and the United States,
Budo International Magazine and Yamazato Productions became known all over the world,
with interviews in 14 languages for his particular vision of teaching and thinking,
a teaching of quick results with a hard psychopedagogy
and a universal thought of the Budo of the XXI century.
They call him "The Buffalo of Karate " in international magazines and books and also call him "Living Legend ".
In 2004 he settled in the mountains of Patagonia Argentina,
from where he travels periodically to visit students,
