After completing his Olympic judo career following the 2008 games in Beijing, a Bronx native has now found his niche in the business world while managing to keep with the sport.
Youngsters at the Jamie Towers Judo Club are learning the sport from two-time Olympian Taraje Williams-Murray.
The knowledge he passes on to them has been accruing since he was 8 years old.
Two years ago, Williams-Murray started his own advisory firm, Coroebus Wealth Management, which was named after the first gold medalist of the ancient Olympic games.
