DSK Martial Arts
Natural State Competitor Spotlight for November 2018
Come Join Riley November 10, 2018 in Little Rock

www.naturalstateclassic.com

Riley Marie Rhodes
Age: 17
Hobbies: Riley loves to wood burn and of course martial arts.

Martial arts school: God’s Warriors

Style: Traditional Tae Kwon Do

Team affiliation: Team Heartland, WKU Team USA

League Affiliation: ASKC, ProMac, WKU, NASKA and local circuits like United Karate

When asked about herself, Miss Rhodes stated, “I love martial arts as it’s not something everyone does. Honestly, it’s nice to be different. Only 1 in 10,000 who begin their journey in martial arts becomes a black belt. That inspires me. Why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary? The opportunities in the martial arts that have come my way keep me going. I am on an amazing team, Team Heartland! I have been offered a 14k scholarship to college, I travel the world with WKU and most of all I have found friends I can relate to. We competitors are a rare breed. We both compete together and against each other, beat each other up and then hang out like nothing ever happened. We congratulate each other, teach each other and coach each other. There is no other sport that I know of that does this. It bonds us in a truly special way. I love my karate family from all over the USA and my overseas friends.”

Martial Arts has taught me so much about respect, self-discipline, self-motivation, self-defense, anti-bullying, setting goals, teamwork, and building confidence. Commitment helps me strive to meet the goals I have set for myself in the future. It is a daily challenge to push myself to excellence by continuing to improve my skills.

It is an experience I will always treasure and remember as I continue to learn so that I can help others.”
