My name is Jairo de Souza Barbosa. I am 39 years old. I live in Brazil / Mato Grosso / Alto Araguaia.
I know I started late in Aikido, because here was not an Aikido Dojo. But she already knew Aikido through books, magazines and movies Stiven Segal Sensei.
So when Carlos, my Sensei, moved to my town and willing to teach the Art of Peace, I wasted no time. I started Aikido in 2003, trained for three consecutive, but had to stop during the College of Communication.
I am currently in 5th kyu, but already working as an Instructor / Sempai Aikido since 2011, in classes for groups of adults and children's media.
It's great to be with people they like and also practice Aikido. Even physically distant, we can communicate and exchange experiences as a large group of Aikidoka.
Family size to hug everyone.
