Saeed Badiei

saheed1I was born in Tehran, Iran in 1965. I lived in a family of 11, including my 9 siblings. As the last child, I was heavily influenced by my brothers, who taught me to wrestle, box and play soccer.

When I was 14, my fourth oldest brother encouraged me to take up martial arts, then known as K​ung fu TO,A,​ a system developed by master E​brahim Mirzai. He was a Persian army official that studied in China. Upon his return, he spread his art through our country rapidly.

I started my journey in martial arts under one of his disciples, master F​arzin Raji. That was the base system I continued for 3 years before it was banned by the regime due to the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

saheed2Shortly after, I had no choice but to choose a system that was approved by the regime, Kyokushin Karate, ​under master H​ossain Shirzad. I continued my training in Kyokushin Karate until leaving my country for good in 1985, and then trained under master I​ngo Freier i​n Berlin, Germany.

Due to a severe injury to my right shoulder, I had to stop training for several weeks. After recovering, I met master ​Felix Preotama, ​who became my Taekwondo i​nstructor. In 1990, I received my first black belt in Taekwondo and competed in T.K.D tournaments for 4 years.

In 1991, after West and East Germany reunited, I moved to Los Angeles and met master F​ariborz Azhakh. He became my H​apkido ​coach for the next 10 years.  I studied the art of Hapkido and received my 5th degree black belt.

During this time, I was introduced to Sifu R​on Bakicki, ​my first Kali influence. From that point on, my research, study, and training focused on Filipino martial arts until I joined the academy of Guru ​Dan Inosanto in 2012. With his guidance, I was be able to study K​ali, Silat, Muay Thai, Jun Fan Kung Fu, ​and with Sensei ​Yori Nakamura, I also studied the art of Shooto ​at the academy.
Now, with my dear friend Professor B​ob Hodgkin, I​ have the opportunity to continue research, study, training, and teaching at his Lihi Jiu Jitsu Academy.
