Personal: I started training when I was 4 years old...I have a dog named Iwalani (Lucky in Hawaiian) that we rescued off of the streets....My heroes are my mom and dad. They take me to the dojo all the time and it is a pretty far drive. They support me 100% in everything I choose to do....I still remember the feeling of my very first National Gold Medal win so that was my biggest win!...My inspiration comes from the Sensei's, Sempais and teammates. There is always something new to learn from each of them and they make training a great day at the dojo!..."Winners never quit and quitters never win."
