Location of club & nights you train?  

Aspley – Aspley East State School
Tuesday: 6:00 – 7:30pm & Thursday: 6:00 – 7:30pm

How did you find out about the NAS competition?

I was a competitor with NAS at the age of 20 for about 2 years when I was training with my previous club. 

What do you like about the NAS competition?

I really enjoy the friendly but highly professional atmosphere within NAS competition, I feel comfortable bringing my students to compete at NAS knowing they will be judged fairly and by non-bias judges. Being involved with the NAS ARB gives me confidence in the quality training of the NAS officials.

Any martial artist looking for a high level of competition should definitely have a look at the National All Styles tournament circuit, the competitors are fierce in the ring, but treat each other with respect & good sportsmanship and are all really good friends.  

I also really like the quality Awards & Trophies that NAS gives to its competitors, even the children who don’t place in an event receive a certificate, bringing a big smile to all of the competitors.


Competitor – Profile  pic35

NAME: Delio Senatore

STYLE: Seishin-Ryu Karate-Do Australia

How long have you trained? I started martial arts at the age of 5 and I am now 21 years old and a Senior Instructor for my club.

Where do you train? I train under sensei Ettore Senatore at jamboree, Camira and Redbank plaza sports complex throughout the week as well as the usual training at home. I also attend as many seminars as possible.

Can you tell us what you like about the NAS competition? NAS is an all rounded fair martial arts competition which is highly enforced by rules and regulations for competitor safety and respect of the martial arts industry. It allows competitors to test their skills in an ever changing environment as each competitor has a different fighting style from a different martial arts background.

Best moment/memory in competition with the NAS? I have had many memories throughout NAS, having a successful journey competing in junior age groups taking out many nationals in kata and sparring. My most recent memory is winning the kata championships in the men’s black belt open in 2009 and winning the men’s feather weight division and coming runner up in the champions of champions. I will never forget that moment walking into the ring fighting for the champions of champions with hundreds of people watching in the arena not to mention the fight being broadcasted live around the world. Also taking out 2011 & 2012 Male Champion of Champion titles

Have you a favourite technique in competition? My favourite technique would have to be the ura-mawashageri (hook kick). I practice my timing with this kick during training although I do not solely rely on this technique. I incorporate all my techniques into sparring training so that I have vast majority of ‘tools’ ready to be used.

Favourite martial artist... Hands down without a doubt is Bruce Lee. Since I was young I have idolized Bruce Lee, watching his movies and how fast and power full he could be for a small statured person. He was an inspiration to me throughout my martial arts journey. I still have posters of him on my walls, acknowledging him every time I go into my room.

What are your future goals in the NAS? This year due to studies and teaching I will be devoting my time to the NAS as a referee and assisting in the development of the NAS competition
