Johnny and Teddy Reyes are more than just brothers, they're also amongst the best Taekwondo athletes in the country, judging by their triumphant performances at the 2014 USA Taekwondo National Championship. Johnny, a black belt, brought home a bronze medal in poomsae (forms), while younger brother Teddy, a green belt, claimed triple medals- two gold and one bronze in poomsae, board breaking and sparring, respectively.

The Glenview brothers are a true taekwondo force, according to White Tiger Head Master Shik Lee. "Johnny and Teddy have shown themselves to be among the best," commented Lee with a proud grin. "I see nothing but successes for them in the future."
