My name is Firas I'm 17 years old and I started practicing Aikido only a month ago!
I was introduced since I was a child though!
My grandfather (Now paralyzed) was an Aikido instructor in lebanon. He wanted me to practice but my mom didn't accept because for her that is a symbol of violence and my grandfather's life was filled with violence (Mostly because of war in my country).
I learned from my uncle that my grandfather's teacher was a russian who was taught directly under the founder!
So now I moved to Canada and since my parents don't control me no more I decided to start practicing what I always wanted to do.Maybe I will end up a master,so my grandfather would be proud of me and because I love it.
I practice at Agatsu Aikido at montreal. The senseis are amazing and they explain the techniques very well and are always there for help!
