Florence Marois

Seishidosha Candidate, Junior Black Belt

Hi, my name is Florence but my friends at Aikido call me Flo!  I am bilingual French-English. I’m currently a Junior Black Belt, an ITP (Seishidosha Candidate) and I’ve been doing Aikido since March 2017.  I practice 3 days a week or more.

I participated in several seminars and sleepover events, notably with Ishiyama Sensei, Jim Sensei and Yumi Sensei.  I have attended teen retreats: Cowichan Lake with Hilary Sensei, and Shawnigan Lake with John Sensei.  I also went to Calgary at the Big Rock Aikikai dojo to attend seminars with Steve Erickson Sensei, and enrolled in the overnight summer camp.  

I like to teach Aikido because I like to communicate and help others, especially kids.  Aikido has allowed me to further develop my self-confidence and my leadership qualities.  I have also formed wonderful friendships and priceless memories that will last a lifetime.
