“I want to thank Professor Jorge Cerezoli and Grandmaster Hugo Alberto Gomez Fernandez, who took me off the streets and put me onto the right path. Their guidance changed my life completely.” Master Rafael Alderete

A native of Rosario, Argentina, Master Alderete began his studies in the 1970s in K.A.P.U., a martial arts form developed in Argentina by Grandmaster Hugo Alberto Gomez Fernandez. This would be a turning point in his life, which up to then had been on what he admits was a wrong path. “I want to thank Professor Jorge Cerezoli and Grandmaster Hugo Alberto Gomez Fernandez, who took me off the streets and put me onto the right path.,” says Master Alderete. “Their guidance changed my life completely.”

With his induction into the Masters Hall of Fame, Master Alderete is now turning his sights back to Argentina, with plans to open a school in Rosario, Santa Fe. His goal is to give back to his community in recognition of the benefits he has received through the martial arts.

“There are a lot of youngsters over there that need help,” Master Alderete explains. “Because of the level of poverty, they don’t have the opportunity to be guided properly. I believe that by using the martial arts as a tool, I can help these youngsters. As a boy I grew up on the streets having a lot of problems. Now it’s time for me to bring what I have learned back to my own people.”

Master Alderete also hopes to take the ideals of the Masters Hall of Fame back to South America, to acknowledge the efforts of those already teaching. “I want to thank Chairman Daniel Hect and everyone else at the Masters Hall of Fame for the tremendous work they have done, particularly this year. I believe that such an event as this needs to take place in every country because there are many martial arts masters who are still unknown.”

The Masters Hall of Fame was founded in 1999 and is recognized as one of the premier Martial Arts events on the West Coast. The association recognizes exceptional Martial Arts Leaders and Legends through induction into the Masters Hall of Fame. Honorees are chosen for their dedication to the martial arts and their work in the community, as well as their individual successes.
