Manila, Philippines
Tae Kwon Do, the martial art form from Korea, is now popular around the world. It's my sport and my life. 

Please visit OTTC, my Taekwondo Training Center, to learn why!

As an Olympic finalist, world champion Filipino athlete, and movie star, it is now my turn to give back. Anyone can now benefit from the many lessons I has learned at my taekwondo center. 

The Olympians Taekwondo Training Center (OTTC) is a classy and sporty enclave and my new means of self-expression.
