About Farinaz

Warrior at Heart

Farinaz Lari is an Iranian-Canadian entrepreneur, model, public speaker, and community leader who currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. However, Farinaz is not simply a composite of these various titles; she’s something much more. This courageous woman has battled ceaselessly through adversity to attain her goals. Through struggle her character has been forged as though in fire, and yet she never rests, but always strives to conquer new goals and attain higher summits of success.

Training History & World Championship

Fight Like a Girl!

As a child, Farinaz was active, athletic, and passionately interested in sports. From a young age she engaged in gymnastics, basketball, and tennis. However, her growing curiosity around martial arts was blocked by social hostility; adults and boys told her that girls couldn’t fight. Then, by the time Farinaz was 18, when she finally picked up kickboxing, she was told that she was too old to become a champion!

But it was too late; Farinaz was already hooked. Lesson after lesson flowed by. This young woman kept fighting with grit, slowly strengthening her muscles, and sharpening her technique. Deep inside she knew that she had great things to achieve.

In only a few years, she managed to become the first Iranian woman to ever win the WAKO world kickboxing championship in Brazil in 2013. Heroically she negated and proved wrong everyone who had ever told her that girls couldn’t fight. Triumph was hers. This victory remains a shining star in Farinaz’s crown of victory. However, her crown has many other jewels. Farinaz has a history of winning not just one, but multiple national championships as a member of the Canadian and Iranian national kickboxing teams.

Climb to Kickboxing Triumph

Unstoppable Force

Let’s step back a moment. Back in 2009, this fighting lady went to Vietnam with the Iranian team to compete in the 3rd Asian Indoor Games, winning silver. This victory helped to literally kick the door open for Iranian women to fight in international martial arts. Years and events flowed by, with Farinaz fighting in international kickboxing events. This culminated in the famous victory at Brazil, where she won gold for Iran in kickboxing.

Farinaz has never stopped fighting internationally. In 2017, after winning the National Canadian Championship, she became a member of the Canadian National Team, winning a silver medal at the Pan American Championships. Farinaz has claimed victory after victory, winning medal after medal, and yet this fierce woman is always hungry, never content, always seeking a fresh battle, a new test for her warrior spirit! And yet Farinaz has never lost that human touch: she is a kind-hearted and pleasant woman at heart, who honestly wishes to see her pupils grow and succeed.
