Kicking It with RTL
RTL Networks, Inc. Sponsors National Champion of Tae Kwon Do
Denver, Colo., August 4, 2008- This year’s Annual United States Taekwondo Junior Olympics took place in Detroit, MI at Ford Field July 3rd, 2008 through July 6th, 2008. After three days of completion, 12-year-old Malik Taylor took home first place and the title of U.S. Junior National Champion of Tae Kwon Do for the second year in a row. This young, inspiring athlete began his success in Tae Kwon Do about four years ago, just a couple years after his sponsor RTL Networks, Inc. was established.
Richard Lewis, President/CEO of RTL Networks, Inc., works hard to improve opportunities for young people, especially those within his community. As a sponsor, RTL Networks, Inc. supports Malik’s journey and his up and coming career in Tae Kwon Do.
Malik attends Ranch View Middle School in Highlands Ranch and maintains a 3.9 GPA. Malik trains seven days a week for four hours a
day and he also trains over the weekend for eight hours a day. Malik Taylor is one of the few junior high students that is disciplined enough to avoid junk food, sweets and sodas.
This discipline was instilled in Malik by his parents, especially his father Ed Taylor, a disabled veteran. Mr. Taylor supports Malik financially but he also trains alongside his son to understand what it will take for Malik to succeed. Mr. Taylor and Malik even often eat the same foods, working together in the spirit of discipline and determination.
The question on everyone’s mind is: how on earth do you get a young man to be that disciplined toward anything? The answer to this question is yet another question. “What is my opponent doing that I’m not doing right now?” says Malik, “When I don’t get out of bed my opponent probably does and then I’m one step behind.” Despite his many victories, Malik keeps a cool head and says he can always get better. The spirit of determination and the hunger for success is the same with Malik Taylor as it is with his sponsor RTL Networks, Inc.
