Jack is a martial arts student at USK in Charlotte, NC, and is quite experienced in the art of Tang Soo Do. He has reached red belt status and was just shy of reaching black belt status when diagnosed. His instructor is Grand Master M.K. Kim, whose uncle, C.S. Kim, trained in the same South Korean martial arts school in which Chuck Norris had trained. Therefore, it is only fitting that Jack’s sports dream is to meet Chuck Norris and hopefully learn a few moves from the man himself! On Friday, July 18th, Jack and his family will be flying out to Las Vegas, for the chance of a lifetime, and to have his dreams come true! Please stay tuned to hear more about his amazing experience.
When Dream On 3 asked Jack what his ultimate sports dream was, he said, “I want to meet Chuck Norris, take a selfie, and put it on a tee-shirt.” Too far-fetched? Not for the Dream Team! We could think of no one better to have your back in a fight than Jack’s sports hero Chuck Norris and the entire United Fighting Arts Federation.
