DSK Martial Arts

Competitor Spotlight for September 2019
Come Join David at the Arkansas Open in Jonesboro, AR on September 14th, 2019.

Name: David Hernandez
Age: 11 years old.
Hobbies: Martial Arts, basketball and video games.
Martial Art School: Joey Perry Martial Arts Academy.
Martial Arts Instructor(s): Joey Perry, Alex Scott, Cody Wilson, Alvin Brown, Zavier Roberts and Curtis Carter.
Team Afiliation: Competition Team JPMAA

Brief biography: David started martial arts when he was just five years old. He tells us, “I enjoyed watching the Power Rangers on television and acted out the fight scenes. My parents decided to enroll me in a karate school in Conroe, Texas. In this school, my first Sensei, Michael Glass, taught me to love and respect Martial Arts.” It was at this point that Martial Arts became a huge part of young David’s life. As fate would have it, David and his family a few years later would move to Jonesboro, Arkansas. Once there, they were lucky enough to find a new Martial Arts School, Joey Perry’s Martial Arts Academy (JPMAA for short). With a smile on his face, David states, “I was so incredibly lucky to find a new school with such wonderful instructors that support, push me and unselfishly give me the best of themselves. They make me the best athlete I can be every day.” When asked about competition, David conveys his feelings to us saying, “I love to see my many friends I have made and make new ones at tournaments. I also really enjoy the competitive atmosphere. It is friendly and at the end of the day we are all one big family.” When asked what inspires him, David smiles and declares, “What inspires me is hearing my name being called in a normal division and with luck sometimes as grand champion.” This success comes with the hard work he puts in. One of David's favorite sayings is that "Hard Work Pays Off!" David tells us, “I’ve had such good and talented people around me and so many supportive people that I consider myself lucky.” We asked David if he had anything else to add, and after a moment and a nod before adding, “I love martial arts because of how creative it is as well as how it often becomes the place where I can relax and just do what I love…. Martial Arts.”
