Hello there! My name is Alessandro Ribaga, I’m 32 and I come from Italy.
I’ve always been an active and curious kid but I grew up with several coordination problems because of my educator’s beliefs when I was in kindergarten. I am left handed but the teacher I had at the time forced me into using my right hand. This kind of “violence” created an imbalance in me and during the years it became a problem. For this reason I decided to do something about it and face it.
A few years ago I started practicing Tai Ji Wudan. At the very beginning it was really hard but I kept on trying and my hard work paid off.
Then I added Tai Chi Chuan Yang Style that gave me smoother motion on the outside and made me stronger on the inside.
Thanks to all that practice, then, I was able to fix the damages done to me in my childhood and I was really motivated to go on, asking myself what would have been my next step.
