About Lutalo

Lutalo was born and raised a few miles from the site of the Olympic Stadium in Stratford. He began practicing taekwondo at the age of three with his father Wayne Muhammad, who has more than four decades of experience in martial arts.

“My dad began teaching me to give me some discipline and focus, ” said Lutalo.

“We were watching the taekwondo at the Sydney Olympics when my dad asked me if I would like to compete. I replied ‘yes’ and have been competing ever since. I am proud to say I owe him everything.”

In the summer of 2011 he joined the GB Academy and has gone on to secure medals at numerous competitions including the Olympic Games in 2012 and 2016.
