Rayna Vallandingham is the youngest black belt martial artists to attain 11 World Championships by age 9, she has now retired from competing at tournaments. In 2011, at age 8, Rayna won 4 World Titles in Little Rock, Ark (the Triple Crown in Traditional; Forms, Weapons, Sparing and Creative Weapons) making her the youngest black belt ever to win a Championship (competing against girls twice her size and a number of years older). The next year (2012) she won 6 more world championships (Triple Crown in Traditional, Creative Weapons, XMA Forms, and XMA Weapons), and in 2013 she won the XMA Forms World Championship.
    After winning her last World Championship at ATA's World in Little Rock, she flew to Los Angeles to make her debut in Phillip Rhee's film UNDERDOG KIDS as Leticia. The film was awarded the Dove Award (June, 12015) release date - July 7, 2015.  Rayna along with her co-stars in Underdog Kids (Aidian Considine and Andrew Franklin) are performing at Expos as well as giving seminars.
    Rayna trains everyday with Olympian Peter Lopez, when not acting, under the watchful eye of Three Time Olympic Coach Jean Lopez.  She studies acting with Oscar Nominee, Sally Kirkland and is home schooled (Louisa Karam is her private teacher).
    Rayna is part of a Demo Team/Act and appears as "Child Prodigies" (Channah Zeitung and Rayna Vallandingham) at County Fairs, Carnivals, schools and events promoting stop bullying. Rayna and Channah are now Ambassador's for Deux par Deux Clothes.
     Rayna and Channah were chosen in 2013 to be the poster kids for the WISHING FOR MOMMY Pink Belt campaign so kids with mothers that have breast cancer can treat their Mom to a wonderful day. They have traveled the US as well as Bali and Australia promoting the Pink Belt Revolution and ATA Leadership, appearing at Martial Arts schools as well as The Green School in Bali..
    Recently she was featured in ATA's Iridescent Jahng Bong with Mike Chat, Rayna Vallandingham and Channah Zeitung promotional video and an instructional video on the Advance Body Roll.
   Her journey in Martial Arts began with Sr. Master Ken Church (CHURCHS MARTIAL ARTS in Encinitas) where she won her Championships. She learned her performance skills with, World Champion Caitlin Dechelle and World Champion Trish Church. Her weapon (the Bo) was taught to her by World Champion Jackson Rudolph. Keeping up her black belt ATA skills she trains with Sr. Master Ken Church and Trish Church. Rayna is also a certified Martial Artist Instructor.
