Now he has made the team, and The Post’s Amy Shipley has his remarkable story. His journey started when he spotted a video of the ever-dynamic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at Landmark Mall when he was 10. He was offered a free martial arts lesson, and with his mother’s permission, took it. His potential was soon spotted, and he began winning tournaments at age 13. He later graduated from T.C. Williams High School and attended Northern Virginia Community College.

In the story, Jennings’ parents, who now live in Dumfries, mentioned that they did not have the money to travel to London for the Olympics in August. So Washington attorney Rick Joyce stepped up and has offered to donate the airfare for one ticket to England, and he is raising money for a second. If you want to help, there’s more information here.

And here is video of Jennings competing in the 2010 World Cup
