“This is the moment I’ve been waiting for since I was a kid,” Kielholtz said. “My martial arts journey began when I was nine. I have won multiple championships in kickboxing and judo and it feels like the universe is putting everything together. All the efforts and all the sacrifices I have made in my life have led me to this opportunity. This is the best achievement of my career. This is mine. “
