From my condition, as a person with physical disability, the process with Zapata Sensei has been very interesting. His methodology and baggage of knowledge taught in his classes, specific content in the online classroom for my disability and all this developed in a friendly atmosphere. Approaching with sensei to luthiery from a custom-made shakuhachi design created for my disability has been very special. His process of creation and the elaboration of his own designs of mouthpieces stands out. These designs break the schemes of the history of the instrument and traditional Japanese schools. This is the unique identity of the Zapata brand.

I highly recommend taking lessons with Zapata Sensei. Not only is he incredibly patient, but his teaching style makes learning the instrument a very convenient experience. He goes beyond just technique, delving into the rich philosophy that underlies the shakuhachi and budo traditions. Thank you for starting me on my journey through the path. Your teaching way is exceptional, it is done in the old way, with your mind, body, and heart working together.

I just purchased a wonderful Mumon Ryu Jiari Shakuhachi from your website. Your assistance helped me a lot during the process of choosing the flute. The information and guidance you provided helped me a lot in deciding what type of shakuhachi to choose. Also your support was very helpful in placing my order and really made my purchasing easy and effortless. I appreciate all your assistance. Thank you very much. Best regards!
