Specialization/s: Martial arts coach,


Hanshi "Tino" Ceberano is well-known in Australia as the father of traditional karate-do. As a direct student of the late Gogen Yamaguchi (Goju Kai Karate), it was Hanshi Ceberano who was appointed by Gogen Sensei to introduce the style into Australia in a time when little was known in the country of the art of Karate. As Australia's chief representative and leader of the system, Hanshi Ceberano took the style from nothing to a main powerhouse in the industry. It would be fair to say that the DNA of any karate exponent in Australia can be traced back to Hanshi Ceberano. In addition to being the most qualified source of knowledge in the Goju Kai system in Australia, Hanshi Ceberano is also a master Coach (Guro) in the highly effective Filipino martial art of Kalis/Arnis. Hanshi Ceberano's knowledge is vast and his ability as a coach, teacher and mentor is second to none. In 2019 Hanshi Ceberano was investured with the order of Australia medal, for his work in the martial arts industry. Hanshi Ceberano is a 9th degree black belt and holds a Diploma of Sports Coaching for Martial Arts.
