|Maria Rosa Valluzzi approached Aikidō in 1993 while she was a student at the University of Padova, under the guidance of Alberto Gaspari Sensei with the technical supervising of Tada Hiroshi Sensei. Her passion for the Art grew outright, and she started attending several seminars organized by Aikikai d'Italia and practicing in every occasion both in Italy and abroad.

|After discovering Jōdō during a weapon seminar with Hosokawa Hideki Sensei, she started looking for specific shools of that Art. Fundamental was the encounter with Lorenzo Trainelli (Ryū no Ibuki Dōjō, Monza) and Daniele Romanazzi (Takehaya Dōjō, Rome-IT), pionieers of Shintō Musō Ryū Jōdō in Italy. They gave her the opportunity to know Pascal Krieger Sensei in 2002, during a multi-disciplinary seminar in Les Iles de Lerins (France). The same year she became a member of the European Jōdō Federation (FEJ).

|Since then she attended several multi-disciplinary seminars of Aikidō, Jōdō and Iaidō, under the guidance of Malcolm Tiki Shewan, René Van-Droogenbroeck (VDB), Stéphane Benedetti, Daniel Leclerc, who all crucially contributed, and still contribute, to enrich her practice, thanks to the deepening of the studies of the Arts and the effects of their complementarity.
All that led her to face changes and new developments, among which the approach to Aikidō Shumeikan school of Tamura Nobuyoshi Sensei (2004), her membership in Aikidō Shumeikai Italia association since its establishment (2005), as well as her approach to Musō Shinden Ryū Iaidō (within the European Iaidō Federation, FEI, 2004), and to Shodō.

|She proposed regular Aikidō and Jōdō courses at the University Sporting Centre (CUS) of the University of Padova from autumn 2004 until spring 2014, with the basic idea to offer an opportunity to students to approach and study the Martial Ways beside other competitive sports. Since September 2014 she moved all courses to Yoshitaka Center ASD in Padova and proposes regular classes of Aikidō, Jdōō, Iaidō and Shodō.
