Khalfani’s youth was filled with inspiration to pick up martial arts, from his father’s legacy, to watching Taekwondo greats on television every weekend, to a love of anime. He started sparring when he was six and fell in love with the sport, enjoying kicks and the satisfaction of hitting someone. Between high school and joining the Army, Khalfani made the US Team and won a gold medal at the Costa Rica Open. A Youth Olympic Team Member and Junior Worlds US Team Member, he now fights as a Soldier-athlete in WCAP, vying for Olympic gold at Paris 2024.
