    Biggest Win. Why? *
    My biggest win was getting second place this year, in Fort Lauderdale,FL , in the 12-13 year old Elite Kumite Devision because it was my first time trying out for the team. And being able to be on the USA junior team is unbelievable and just an incredible feeling and opportunity.
