These days, it is very common to find people whom are not involved in the martial arts, to have a distorted idea of what the Arts are all about, primarily for what is shown in so-called 'action movies'. With this in mind, typically many parents are afraid that if their children start practicing some type of martial arts, they are going to become aggressive and are going to misuse the self-defense skills learned by beating on brothers, sisters or friends.
Sanguinetti Sensei relieves parents from this natural fear by explaining to them that children with the correct instruction in the martial arts not only will become less prone to fight, but because the constant emphasis on the moral aspects and the physical nature of the Arts taught at the Bushikan Dojo, children will become better citizens and better athletes.
Sanguinetti Sensei's own daughter, Nicolla, is clear proof of his statement. He has taught martial arts to Nicolla since she was 3 years old, and now at the age of 21, Nicolla is not just an accomplished practitioner, but she is an excellent student at her university. In academics, she maintains a 4.0 GPA, meanwhile in sports she always qualifies for the teams that she tries out for because of the natural physical abilities that she has developed from the martial arts.
"I have trained Karate for over twelve years. I am now 21 years old and I can see how it has helped me. I love playing sports, especially soccer. I play the position of goalie. To be a keeper you have to be quick on your feet, clear headed, and have really good reflexes. Karate gave me those skills. I know that Karate has helped me become who I am today. I am disciplined and patient. I have also learned respect;. I respect my elders and those trying to teach me what I don’t understand yet. I am still training and at 15 I obtained my Shodan (black belt) rank. Karate has taught me to respect all those who respect me and to take each day at a time. I’m in no hurry to grow up. That day will come soon enough".
