Joshua's Taekwondo Dream Trip
Organized by: Israel Torres
EVENT DATE Jun 30, 2014
First a little about our son Joshua. At 13 yrs. of age, he is a very loving, sweet, caring young boy. Last year he joined the football team at school, midway through the season he had an injury. He experienced a sacral stress fracture which is a small break in the sacrum. The sacrum is a large triangular bone at base of the spine. He required a several sessions of therapy and no sports of any kind for him to properly heal/recover. A year later, as a reward for being promoted to the 8th grade, he was signed up for 3 months Taekwondo lessons. It required lots of stretching which would benefit him. Grandmaster Truong Nguyen Thuan 8 dan degree black belt, sees our son as a natural for martial arts. His quick learning mentality has allowed him to excel quickly. He's already at a red belt level.
We are hoping to raise funds to send J.T. (Joshua) to his tournament in Cali for the Nationals. He earned 1st place in Dallas, qualifying him for the Nationals tournament. When/if he takes placement at the Nationals, he earns a chance for a spot on the Jr. Olympics team! He is very excited and we are hoping any help we receive will make his dream come true. We thank you for all and any support he receives. GOD BLESS and thank you.
