My name is Rylee Fessler and I earned my 4th-degree black belt in Taekwondo with the Tiger-Rock Taekwondo this Summer. I am the first female 13-year-old 4th degree in my academy’s history! I tested for my 4th degree at the World Tournament in San Antonio Texas and also competed in the tournament earning a Bronze Medal in the Master’s Invitation Ring as well as a Gold Medal in board breaking.
Homeschooling has allowed me to train more often because I set my own school hours. It has also allowed me to volunteer my time helping train young martial artists new to the sport.
Other than Taekwondo, I like to spend my time competing in Irish Dance, volunteering at my church, baking, and reading.
I want to use my talents to serve God! I may teach children in either Taekwondo or Irish Dancing, become a Baker, or serve in the Armed Forces but wherever I land I hope others can see Christ’s love for them in me.
History is my favorite subject because we can learn so much from those that came before us.
