At nationals with my brother Omar and sister Kamilah.
Hello everyone! I want to take the time to briefly introduce myself and my family. My name is Sharif Salim and I am 16 years old from Redondo Beach, California. I train at Salim's Taekwondo Center in Redondo Beach, Carson and Eagle Rock. I've done Taekwondo my whole life along with my family. My father Gergely Salim is a 3x European Champion, World Champion and Olympic Champion. My uncle Joseph Salim is a 5x European Champion and a Olympian. My brother Omar Salim is a 6x national champion and a 2x Pan American Champion. As well as my 9 year old sister Kamilah Salim, a 3x national champion.
Below are a list of my accomplishments:

I also want to thank all of my other teammates.
Without them, this wouldn't be possible!
Since I do not receive any sort of funding, I will be left to pay for my own travel and lodging expenses. But, with your support, you can help me get there and will be greatly appreciated!
