Sensei Walter Priori Friggi
Sensei Walter is the newest addition to our Italian alliance here at Xen-Do.
Sensei Walter grew up in Peruga, Italy and moved to London just 6 months ago to explore pastures new. He is a proud husband and father and loves spending time with his wife and his 3 year old son/kickboxing prodigy.
As with many of our Senseis, Walter has been involved in some form of Martial Art from an early age. He has trained in Capoeira and Systema for over 20 years and competed all around Italy. He became so successful that he even owned his very own dojo in Italy that offered classes and instruction in a variety of Martial Arts. His dojo was the first association in Italy to recognise Capoeira as a holistic activity.
On his move to the United Kingdom and Xen-Do, Sensei Walter had this to say:
"I am thoroughly excited to start this new chapter in my life. In Italy, we have a saying: ’aiutati che Dio ti auita’. It basically means that good fortune will come to those who make an effort to accomplish things. My decision at Xen-Do has felt like an incredibly positive opportunity so far and I believe that great things are going to be accomplished in my time here."Walter Priori Friggi
As a man of many talents, Sensei Walter is also a gym and kettle bell instructor and is working towards receiving his personal trainer licence in his spare time.
Walter has a passion for music and luckily for him, his natural rhythm has held him in good stead in his movement around the dojo.
