It’s a great pleasure for japanero.pro to present Juan Pablo Travaglini, or as he is most commonly known: Juampi from Argentina! He is a source of inspiration for us, not only as a coach and a dear friend but also as a clown (by definition) and one of the funniest characters that have touched our hearts.
He dedicated his life to training and teaching handstands and combined acrobatics in Latin America. This guy was trained all over the place and in various disciplines: floor acrobatics and handstands, gaucho skills (equestrian acrobatics / volting) and yoga martial arts in spaces like Circo La Arena, Circo Criollo and Club de Trapecistas (all in Argentina), Circo Para Todos (Colombia), Circo del Mundo (Chile), Acroyoga (Intl.) and Partner Acrobatics (Intl.).
And on top, he was trained by Russian high-performance acrobatic coaches and the ones that have trained with him know what that entails…
In short .. he is one bad ass coach and practitioner that you want to meet and learn from.
Martial arts like kung fu and karate in my childhood. As I grew up since I was a little boy in the field between horses and cows, I did horseback riding and gaucho skills thus having my first contact with the arts of going round and round. The adrenaline came in my adolescence with extreme sports like downhill or mountain biking. Adventure sports such as trekking and high-performance cycling came a little bit later.With 21 years I learned Yoga, precisely Hatha Yoga. And then came the circus and my love of acrobatics. 10 years ago I trained uninterruptedly handstands and combined floor acrobatics. I formed in sheds and cultural centres.
The school of “Circo del Mundo” in Santiago de Chile gave me my training as an acrobat. 8 years ago I came in touch with Acroyoga for the first time and from there I entered this beautiful family.
