Personal: My hobbies include sleeping , eating , shopping , and taking pictures....My parents are my heroes in real life because they always help me get to the places my brother and I need to be, and they both always help us with everything. My mom is my biggest because she's always going on these trips to watch me compete and cheer me on....Lumpia is my favorite food!...I like the adrenaline in competition, I like the atmosphere, and I like the challege it gives me to compete against the best of the best all around the United States....I get my inspiration from my senseis, because they both sacrifice their time to help me get better, and they're always busy with work , and they still take up the time to train my teammates and I, and out teammates. They also sacrifice their time away from their family to train us...."7 times down, 8 times up" -Sensei Chad
