Meet Catalina Austin

Our Student Spotlight is on Catalina Ann Austin. Catalina is a 9 year old 2nd Degree Black Belt Level 3. She attends Topa Topa Elementary School and is a 4th grader in Mr. Ando's class.

When Catalina was 5, she tried out soccer but found it wasn't her sport. Catalina reports that her mother told her about TaeKwonDo, but she was nervous about trying it. She visited the Academy and watched a class and thought it looked fun, and 3 years later, she is a Black Belt.

Catalina has two big sisters, Noa and Abby. She also has a little brother named Arlo, who is 4.
