HOUSTON --  Alyxandra Lopez, at 17 years old,  is the Senior Level Nation Champion of Taekwondo. That means she’s the best in the country. But that’s to be expected from the newest member of the First Family of Taekwondo to hit the scene.

Alyxandra’s really packing the punches and kicks, she hopes to bring success to the family name. And even though her Uncle Steven’s on the Road to Rio, expect to see her on the big stage in Tokyo 2020.
