Rubeni Selvaraj was selected by Power Sport Taekwondo Academy as the ‘Student of the Month’ for December 2014. Like her elder sibling, Rubeni has dedicated herself to taekwondo for more than a decade. With her long legs and 9 gold medals under her belt, she is a formidable opponent to  many. Rubeni is unassuming, disciplined, committed, respectful, friendly and easy to get along with. Currently, she is taking a break due to a knee injury. We’re praying for her speedy recovery and hope to have her back in the team soon!
