I decided to recount my adventures in the East with an English translation alongside the Italian, to help you study a language that was never heard in my day. Nowadays, if you don’t study English, you may feel a little foolish, as happened to me many years ago, and you'll struggle everywhere you visit, except of course in the country in which you were born. That’s how important it is! So I wanted to give you a hand. If you follow my story page by page, in both Italian and English, then as well as sharing my adventures and learning the teachings of Judo Masters Terada and Akimoto, you can improve your knowledge of one of the most widely spoken languages in the world.
Alfredo Vismara was born in Milan in February 1948. He received his 8th dan Kyoshi at the Dai Nippon Butokukai in Japan and teaches at the Musokan dojo in Milan. In addition to being one of the technical managers of the Friends of Judo association, he also helps out with various judo organizations, promotional companies and Federations, which regularly make use of his technical and teaching skills. He began practicing judo at the age of seventeen and became a black belt in little over a year; he undertook intense competitive judo training and won several Italian titles in his class and in open competition. He was also in the national team and had notable successes in international competitions. While not participating in federal competitions, he competes in numerous important tournaments, some internationally, constantly stimulated by his desire to improve his judo. He has had contact and technical exchanges with many teachers in Europe, enriching his technical and teaching knowledge. In Japan, he is affiliated with the Dai Nippon Butokukai (National Confederation of Martial Arts) for which he performed in April 1991 in Kyoto, with his brother Joseph, during the Butokusai (annual demonstration of martial arts) demonstrating Koshiro no kata. In addition, several teachers at the Kodokan in Tokyo appreciate his knowledge and performance of Judo Kata, which he studies with devotion and teaches extensively.
