He commenced his training in 1976 with Merv Oakley (pictured training with Master Yamaguchi). Oakley brought Karate to Sydney in the 1960's and Mario spent 26 years training with him. This is where Mario learnt the art and developed his passion for Karate. Mario had a desire to become the chief of his own Dojo and continued his training linked directly with Fujiwara Hanshi in Japan.
