Carlo is an Internationally certified 6th Dan Kukkiwon Black belt and has had one of the most successful careers in the history of taekwondo in Australia.

During his time as a professional athlete, Carlo was fortunate enough to work alongside many great organisations including the Victorian Institute of Sport and the national suicide prevention charity Life's a Ball.

Carlo was also a sought after public speaker and motivator drawing on his experiences as an Olympian. He regularly conducted sessions at Melbourne secondary schools teaching students life-skills and self defence.

After the Athens Olympics, Carlo made the decision to retire from competitive sport and focus on fulfilling his dream of opening up his own taekwondo centre. Today Team Carlo Taekwondo is one of the fastest growing schools in Australia.
