Sifu Paul Vizzio
Sifu Vizzio currently holds 18 World Championship titles in 5 different weight classes for professional Kickboxing with a record of 47-1 with 33 KO's.
He also has a record of 55 wins with 54 KO's and 1 draw while competing in the 400lb and under Death Matches popularized by the movie "Blood Sport". He has been featured in martial arts magazines, national television, and documentaries. He has trained celebrities such as Morgan Fairchild as well as the late Arturo Gatti, Olympic Gold Medalist Herb Perez and Olympian Kevin Padilla.
Trained under Wai Hong (the Grand Master of Fu-Jow Pai Kung-Fu) Sifu Vizzio continues to pass on the tradition of this unique art as well as his priceless experience and knowledge of the martial arts to his students.
Prior to becoming a professional kickboxer, Vizzio fought in full contact bouts sponsored by the Eastern Kung-Fu Federation. These contests were fought without weight divisions, with little or no protective gear or gloves, and were often fought on wooden floors. They resembled more the "Extreme Fighting" matches of the twenty-first century than they did any other organized fights of their time. The most well-known of the kung-fu matches was the highly publicized "death match" in 1977 with Lee Man Chin, Grandmaster of The Seven Animals System.
Upon arriving in the U.S., Chin issued a challenge to all American martial artists. At the request of the Grandmaster of the Fu-Jow Pai system, Ng Wai Hung, Vizzio accepted the challenge. The fight was broadcast on a Chinese radio in New York. Vizzio won by a knockout in 6 seconds.
Sifu Vizzio is also one of the first people to develop and teach Cardio Kickboxing which has grown into an international phenomenon. Although the list goes on and on, the only thing that surpasses his skill and life achievements is his modesty and passion for his art. Sifu Vizzio is known to most as a true champion, a pioneer, and loving father.
