Murphy Students Achieve International Success
13-year-old twins, Sally and Jonah Ismael, are Taekwondo competitors who qualified for the 2019 World Cadet Championship. Last year, they earned 5th place at the Europe Cadet Championship. They train together in their garage without a coach, trainer or teammates.
The Ismael family is from Israel; thus the twins are current Israel National team members. They are former USA/AAU National team members.
Because they were bullied in the past by both adults and students, they have a goal to overcome bullies and show them that positivity can overcome all obstacles. In addition to their athletic accolades, both Sally and Jonah have achieved high academic goals in that they are both honor students and national junior honor society members.
