Wyoming Virtual Academy junior, Timothy Radosevich is not shy to hard work!

He has been active in martial arts for more than 11 years, and he has had the honor of competing from coast to coast.  He competes in sparring, forms and weapons.  

Timothy recently traveled to the Elite World Martial Arts Championship, which was covered by ESPN, in Florida. A total of 13 countries, including Puerto Rico, Nigeria, Germany, Russia, Japan and South Korea, as well as countries in the European Union, competed for martial arts world titles.  

“My first event was sparring; they were close fights, but in the end I was called up on the stage and was titled the World Sparring Champion,” Timothy recalled. He also won the world titles in weapons and forms. 

Timothy’s love for martial arts and competition is one of the main reasons he loves being a virtual student. 

“K12 makes my school day flexible so it can fit my hectic competition and practice schedule,” he said. “In Florida when I got done fighting I could pull out my laptop and do my school. I can easily make sure I communicate with my teachers and keep on top of work.”
