Personal: I started Karate at the age of 5 as having a dojo is my family’s business. I was a little bit of a wild child so after a short time I was taken out of class and then joined back again at the age of 6! Really though I have been doing karate my whole life as my mom was training while still pregnant with me....Three things you may not know about me are that I like cars and racing a lot, I am Iranian, and unlike many people, I really enjoy public speaking!
