Asian World of Martial Arts is extremely proud and thankful for all the athletes that we sponsor.  The newest member to the AWMA team, Kieran Tamondong, had a very busy and successful year in the tournament circuit.  With the help of his coach Marc Canonizado, his Sensei Randy Word at Rising Sun Karate, and his family, Kieran has been able to excel in his division.  But those are not the only things that keeps 12 year old Kieran at the top of his game.  Determination, passion for the sport, and the desire to train on average three to four hours each day make him the fierce competitor he has become.
