I am A Second degree black belt in ATA and have been training since 2008 when I was nine years old. I am a 2015 district champion in weapons. I have also earned state titles in weapons, sparring and combat sparring. In 2015 I competed at the ATA world championships in weapons. As martial artist I have had my fair share of adversity. I struggled as a first degree with my form (poomsae) and almost gave up. I kept practicing and improving. I never thought I would make it this far.
