My Living Hero #3 is my Sensei Mr. Fariborz – for providing us with a second home where we feel safe and have an incredible opportunity to gown physically, emotionally and mentally beyond our wildest dreams. On the first day I visited TKC with my son Arthur, the thing that struck me the most was the sight of an instructor hugging a young student. There was no fear of touching a younger person of the opposite sex. I thought this is the place I want my son be at. A safe and loving environment. It is now eleven years later. So much has happened in our lives and Master Fariborz has always being there with his shy smile, his constant acceptance of who we are and what we can do, without judgement, but constantly pushing us to do better, teaching us new skills every day. But much more than the skills, are the life lessons I have learned by vicariously living at TKC. Also, the numerous martial artists he had introduced to us and who have taught us such diverse styles from all over the world. It is through Sensei Fariborzs teachings that I credit my self-worth, self-esteem, my higher ethical degree of care at work and in every facet or my and my familys life. From making my bed in the morning, to spending quality time with my kids, for making the education of my sons my top priority, for being the best friend I can be and for making others successes my successes. For teaching all that I know without caring if I lost my job because I have taught someone more than I know. For doing what is right when no one is watching. For implanting in me the knowledge and I have only myself to be accountable to. Only I know in my heart if I am doing what is right, if I am doing what I need to do to. Only I know if I am honest, loyal and truthful to myself and to others.
