2nd Kyu, Assistant Instructor
Theresa Lirov began her study of Aikido in 2011 after meeting Sensei Reuven Lirov, who was then finishing his time as an Uchi Deshi. Quickly developing a keen love for the art, she dove into her training, taking daily classes (often twice a day). She trained primarily under Sensei Jim Soviero at Aikido of Red Bank until she moved to Florida with where she continued her training at Sensei Gina Boccolucci's dojo in Tampa.
Upon moving westward, she helped found Pinellas County Aikikai together with Sensei Reuven where she enjoys working with beginners and especially expanding on ukemi practice whenever possible.
