Matthew Ramos

Mr. Ramos started with DO-Martial Arts in 2017 when he was 12 years old. This student is a great example of Indomitable Spirit, with a lot of challenges and some odds against him, this student continue pushing forward regardless the outcome. Every time he fell down, he will stand up and continue going.

We are very proud of this student because he had seeing first hand what it takes to really be a Black Belt and is not only about tournaments.
