Jayda “Baby Dragon” Skye has Olympic aspirations.

This is the year of the “Baby Dragon.”

Jada Skye is back on the Taekwondo circuit this year, defending her 42-1 fighting record. She is currently training for the state championship on March 31, followed by national qualifiers which will stamp her ticket to the 2012 Junior Olympics in Dallas, Texas on June 28.

Besides working on fighting skills, Skye’s team is also busy creating the Jayda Skye Rising Stars Foundation, which looks to enable aspiring children to pursue their martial arts dreams by helping them through financial obstacles.

Her dream is to be the youngest Hispanic athlete to make Team USA in the 2016 Olympics for Taekwondo. With devastating kicks and a solid work ethic, that dream might turn into a reality.
