Did You Know?: TJ's mother, father and sister are also black belts in taekwondo. I started karate at 4 years old,  at 11 I joined a WTF school and that's where I was hooked and my Olympic Dream was born.  A couple years later in 2003 I made my first national team and traveled to Brazil and from there I knew that I could reach my goals.  With the new world ranking points set up I and truly grateful to have the NRG matrix fund help support me to make my dreams a reality.

"Determination is intriguing; one day you want something and with determination, before you know it you got it."

I believe you can do whatever you want. You just need to go out and do it. There's nothing out there that can keep you from reaching greatness except yourself.
