Coach Elisa

ELISA TESTA

Karate Coach certified by CSEN

I started studying Wado-ryu karate in 2005 in the dojo of Luca Palma. Between 2007 and 2010 I practiced in various Goju-ryu and Shito-ryu style dojos, and then I returned to Wado-ryu in Paolo Gasbarri’s dojo. In 2016 I met the masters Roberto Danubio, Maurizio Paradisi and Giuseppe Carloni and I approached the WKSI – Wadokai Karatedo Shingitai Italia, branch of the Japan Karatedo Federation Wado-Kai, participating in numerous seminars organized by them in Switzerland and in Italy, and studying first in the dojo of the master Paradisi and, finally, in the Riccardo Rita‘s dojo (Wado Waza Karate), where now, having obtained the qualification of Karate Coach, I teach the youngest children (Karate for Babies).

In 2012 I first graduated in Speech Therapy (logopedia), and then I graduated as Interpreter of Sign Language. I’m currently graduating in Psychology. Working and continuing my education as a child speech therapist and studying both karate and neuroscience, especially concerning the child development, I understood the close relationship  between these two worlds, and how karate can not only be practiced since very young, but above all to benefit the child’s growth and psychophysical balance.
