Teaches and trains together with her husband, Manuel Reyes at Oahu Taekwondo Center.  Her daughter, Monica, is her lucky charm.  She has been watching her parents train (or sleeping while they train) early in the morning and late at night since she was a little baby and has gone to pretty much all the tournaments with them.

Quotable Akiko Reyes: "I can truly say that the reason why I am still training and competing after so many years of defeats and facing obstacles is because of the love and support I have received from my wonderful family, coach, teammates, and friends.  Special thanks to my husband, Manny, my coach, Brian & Scott, my dear friend Simona, my wonderful teammates, my role model, Master Barbara Brand, and Progression families."
