When I was 10 years old my father registered me in karate school. It was my first experience with martial arts and I enjoyed it very much. Little did I know that what started out as a hobby would become life changing!

I started first with karate (kan zen rio) studying with Shihan Hasan Shaafei and Shihan Hosein Shaafei. Both were great martial artists and excellent coaches. I practiced karate for 1 year and decided I would like to try something with more action. At the age of 11 I began to study Kung Fu with Master Majid Gazeranei at Amar Kung Fu Academy. I enjoyed it so much that I eventually received my black belt.

After four years, I decided to try another martial arts discipline recently brought back from Japan by my former coach Shihan Shaafei. He introduced me to Seido Kay kan karate. I continued my studies until I received my 2nd degree black belt and referee certificate. During this time I also participated in several full contact tournaments and won many awards and trophies.

When I was 18 years old I received 2nd place in a national full contact karate tournament by winning 3 out of 4 fights – losing only to Iran’s top kickboxing champion. His technique and fitness were superior to mine, so I knew I had more work to do! I began to study with Grand Master Satar Aliour, as well as with Master Satar, and was successful in winning many more tournaments. I am forever thankful for their excellent training and support!

I immigrated to Canada from Iran in 2006. After arriving in Canada, I started teaching martial arts. Since then, I have been competing in local as well as and International tournaments. I represented Team Canada in the World Championship that was held in Germany in 2011 and won a Silver medal.

Because of a shoulder injury I took leave from tournaments and serious training for several years, but I always wanted to go back to fighting again. It is important to me to teach my son and my students that they shouldn’t give up under any circumstances. So I started my training again from a very low level of intensity then increased the level until I started to get back to “fighting shape”.

Finally in 2018, I participated in the IKF Kickboxing World Championship as a representative of Canada. At age 37, I won the Mens World Heavyweight Kickboxing Championship.
