The next Sensei, as written earlier, is one of a kind.
A close friend, a companion on sporting adventures and a sensei with a capital S.
I know I'm biased in this case, but give it to me for once.
Diego Falco began practicing Sports Chanbara back in 1998 and has never stopped breathing, living and getting excited with it ever since. After winning as an athlete, from 1998 to 2009, he began to train the Italian national team leading it to be among the first nations in the world both in Datotsu and Kihon Dosa (in his achievements you can see specifically what I mean).
I could stay here talking about Diego for at least 2 years, but he will do it himself next Thursday through his body and his boundless love for our martial art. Here is some info about him:

Tibor Figei, Worldchampion in Nito explaining his own styl - based on Escrima

The words that come to my mind thinking about him are:
Eclectic, fair, assiduous and determined.
Tibor is one of those people who would do well in any sporting movement and, during his sporting career, both as an athlete and as a coach, he has NEVER missed an event.
That’s what he says about him:
‘’Over the last 10 years I have been practicing dynamic sportshooting, that helped me with the concentration in martial arts.
My basics are in Teakwondo, Wing Tsun and Eskrima and I'm an instructor in both Wing Tsun (black belt) and Eskrima.
I have been training in martial arts for 30 years, as sensei for 15 years.
Sport has been part off my whole life.
Today I'm a sport teacher, trainer, sportsmen in two different sports (sport shooting and SpoChan), international referee in this two sports and the last two years also a sport advisor in my city’’
