Chicago Sends Athletes to Singapore's Youth Olympic Games for Taekwondo

The first Youth Olympic Games kicked off in Singapore over the weekend. Some teens from Illinois will be there, including three from Chicago, representing the U.S. in taekwondo and judo. Sensei Fred Jordan, who discovered martial arts as a 12-year-old, is helping youth on Chicago's South Side do the same.
