Johnny Birch, Sergeant, U.S. Army (RET)

In 2004, Johnny sustained muscle and nerve damage as well as a TBI and after being medically discharged from the Army and losing function in his right foot, Johnny needed an outlet to focus on and he found Taekwondo. Among the list of achievements, a couple of his most impressive are a Bronze Medal from the 2019 Para Pan-Am Games as well as being a two time National Para Taekwondo Champion. Johnny hopes to encourage others to “live each day to the fullest without regreat,” as he does. Johnny lives in Pennsylvania and trains with  Carlisle Taekwondo & Fitness Academy, LLC.
