Most instructors through their martial arts careers get related to martial arts organizations and their instructors where they call it being affilliated to. Sanguinetti Sensei always sees these connections as a "relationship" that he would like to see being developed in both directions through the years. He strongly believes that those relationships should be developed around values such honesty, loyalty, sincerity, and integrity. He believes that a sincere and honest relationship can last forever if it is maintained under those parameters.
As Sanguinetti Sensei has developed and cultivated many martial arts relationship through the years, he also has terminated two relationships with instructors that forgot the tremendous importance to maintain moral values at the Dojo as well as no playing politics. Among some of the most important relationships that Sanguinetti Sensei has cultivated in the martial arts through the years are:
In 1978 Sanguinetti Sensei was introduced to Okinawan Goju Ryu for the first time when Juichi Kokubo Sensei moved to Perú from Japan to start the promotion of the Okinawan art. Until that year Kokubo Sensei was an “uchi deshi” (living student) of Morio Higaonna Sensei in Tokyo, Japan before he moved to Perú. Since 1978 Sanguinetti Sensei has always maintained a relationship with Kokubo Sensei where Sanguinetti Sensei not only visits Kokubo Sensei periodically in Perú but also he invites Kokubo Sensei to teach at his Dojo in San Diego in his Annual Bushikan Gasshuku.
Sanguinetti Sensei began his relationship with the Kodokan Organization in Okinawa in 1981 when he met Shinpo Matayoshi Sensei for the first time. The following year Sanguinetti Sensei moved to Okinawa to live there and to train under Matayoshi Sensei. Sanguinetti Sensei continued his relationship with Shinpo Matayoshi Sensei until his death in 1997. Since then Sanguinetti Sensei continued his relationship with the Matayoshi Family and the Kodokan for 35 years becoming the most senior Kodokan instructor outside Japan.
Sanguinetti Sensei met the founder and chief instructor of the Shorei Shobu Kan budo organization, John Roseberry Shihan, for the first time in 1993 joining his organization the same year. Since then, his relationship with Roseberry Shihan has grown very much. For 13 years Sanguinetti Sensei invited Roseberry Shihan and Shorei Shobu Kan senior instructors to teach at his dojo in San Diego, as well that Sanguinetti Sensei travels to Shihan's Honbu Dojo in Meryland to train with him and to teach at the Shorei Shobu Kan Annual Convention. Sanguinetti Sensei also visit the Lincoln Dojo every year to teach at the Annual Matayoshi Kobudo Gasshuku.
This budo organization, with headquarters in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was headed by founder and chief instructor James Hawks Sensei. Sanguinetti Sensei became a member of the organization in 1993 and since then he was nominated a Member of the Board of Directors of Kobudo. As part of his relationship and support to the USKA Sanguinetti Sensei traveled every year to the USKA Nationals in Albuquerque as well as the USKA Souther California Tournaments.
The Intercontinental Bujutsu Federation is directed by one of their founders, Jorge Garibaldi Sensei, with headquarters in Denmark. Even though Sanguinetti Sensei has been a member of this budo organization only since 2009, he is very committed to build a strong relationship with the IBF members. In 2010 Sanguinetti Sensei traveled to Salou, Spain to participate and to teach at the 2do Encuentro IBF, in 2011 attended the 3er Encuentro IBF in Aarhus, Denmark.
