Riley qualified last month for AAU Taekwondo Nationals in Ft. Lauderdale! Officials made the decision to let her fight a boy since no girls were available at her level. Let’s just say that she did VERY well. The poor kid was crying by the second round and eventually just quit–he couldn’t finish the fight.
Here’s the awesome video (Riley’s in red):
We head for Ft. Lauderdale on July 1 and won’t be back until July 8. It’s going to be a long trip, but I just want her to do well and have a great experience.
