Sensei Robbie 101: IMC Liverpool Interview Series

Sensei Robbie Castellano 


How did you start at IMC and what style?

I started at IMC in 1987 at Kemps Creek with a family friend who's older brother was already training with Hanshi Paul. Sadly both of them stopped training a few months after I joined but I continued training. 


How old were you when you started at IMC?

I was 4 years old.


What is your favourite style or class to train in?

It has changed a lot as I've gotten older. As a kid I loved Karate and then as a young adult I moved more into Muay Thai Kickboxing. Now in this moment of my life I am in love with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which I currently train during the day before I come to IMC. 


What is your favourite food?

I love all types and love trying different foods from different cultures.


What do you like to do when your not at IMC?

I love to travel. I spent 8 years of my life, living and working all over the world and even now I still try to do a few exotic trips each year. I also love training BJJ and spending time with my family.


What is your favourite place that you have travelled to?

My 3 favourite countries that I have been to would have to be Colombia, Thailand and Ethiopia. 


How many siblings do you have?

I have 2 sisters and 1 brother, they are all younger than me. Unfortunately none of them train in any Martial Arts. 


When you were young, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I didn't really know what I wanted to be but I always wanted to be involved in Martial Arts. I think I have the best job in the world. I love waking up each day, looking forward to coming into the dojo. 


What are you looking forward to when IMC reopens?

Definitely seeing all the students and parents again. I think we have a great family culture in our school. From our baby classes all the way to our tough Adult programs. It's a great mixture of culture.
