GARCIA AMADORINever Stop Learning
I was born in Milan in 1975, and my passion for combat sports came to me at an early age.
At six I began wrestling with my father Gabriele, a competitive wrestler, and later studied judo, vie vo dao and kickboxing, finally moving on to boxing at the age of 19.
During my military service with the Folgore Paratroop Brigade I began passing on my acquired combat techniques to my fellow soldiers. This was when I discovered my passion for teaching and a desire to make it my profession.
The following years brought a series of work experiences, sacrifices and goals, professional and personal.
Today, I am a martial artist and master specialized in mixed martial arts (MMA), Brazilian jiu jitsu and boxing.
In 2002, as a competitive boxer, I won the Lombard Belt and a year later became licensed as an athletic trainer.
In 2006 I earned the qualification of federal boxing expert and the following year established MMA Atletica BOXE.
In 2008 I became the youngest trainer in Italy to qualify a student in the Italian championship and, in the same period, reached my greatest achievement as a boxing trainer: a gold medal at the prestigious National Cup in Austria.
There is a date and place I shall never forget: 8 August 2014 at the Pala FDLKAM in Ostia (Rome). The day I coached Anita Torti, Italian female lightweight champion, to win her first Italian title. Under my guidance, she reached third place in the world professional boxing rankings.
SKILL AND EXPERIENCE
The ongoing study of techniques in their constant evolution enables me to achieve my mission with maximum professionality.
PASSION AND DISCIPLINE
My inborn, ongoing passion for bodily movement and equilibrium, together with sport and martial discipline.
HUMILITY AND CONSTANCY
Humility plus perseverance in learning is the basis for continuously improving the individual and my personal and professional proficiency.
RESEARCH AND INNOVATION
An ongoing search for new techniques had enabled me to innovate and revolutionize what I have learned over the years, resulting in the All Points method.
THE ART OF DEFENSE
The Art of Defense is a video that tells how I approached martial arts and my main motivation in teaching, that is to put the individual in a position to know how to defend himself. The video was born from a project proposed by the director Riccardo Pittaluga (Verona, 1984) and was shot in 2015.
MY MISSIONOn my Way
Overcoming one’s fears and confronting difficulties with courage is a challenge we all must face in various moments of our lives. My greatest satisfaction as a Master is when I teach people to defend themselves, not just physically, and see them gain confidence. Combat is the way I have chosen to defend myself and overcome my obstacles. Today my mission is to guide people who wish to follow this same path.
