Japoy Lizardo has gone a long way from being a newbie taekwondo gin to being one of the youngest members of the Philippine Taekwondo team’s coaching staff. “I’ve been doing taekwondo for more than half my life,” he says. And it certainly shows. He’s won gold, silver, and bronze medals in international competitions and has now fixed his sights on training the new crop of Filipino taekwondo gins to conquer the 2020 Olympics.

A husband—he married fellow taekwondo black belter Janice Lagman—and a new father to adorable son Jace, Japoy takes on life the same way he takes on an opponent on the mats: with perseverance, courage, discipline, and a whole load of passion.
