They fell in love because of a mutual passion for taekwando. Today, they are Mr. and Mrs. Lizardo. While the rest of the country focused on the national elections, couple Japoy Lizardo and Janice Lagman quietly tied the knot on May 8 in a beautiful and intimate wedding ceremony in Tagaytay.

Former teen sensation (remember that Milo ad in the nineties?) and athlete Japoy Lizardo is married. He tied the knot with sweetheart Janice Lagman over the weekend.

The marriage was solemnized in a garden wedding in Tagaytay, with the bride stunning in a simple, off-white dress with silver accents across the waist.

Janice walked down the aisle just as the sun was beginning to set, the light casting soft shadows on her face. She carried a bouquet of pink roses.

Just last month, Japoy and Janice, who are both taekwando practioners, shared a romantic taekwando prenup video.

The couple, who are both accomplished taekwando practitioners, met and fell in love while practicing their sport. Since then, they  have launched a taekwando program, where they mentor the youth. They are considered as two of the top taekwando experts in the country.

Japoy, 29, has bagged several medals from the Southeast Asian (SEA)Games, the Asian Games, and Asian Championships. He was also a member of the national team, but was forced to quit following an injury. He currently coaches the Dela Salle University team, as well as the St. Benilde's taekwando team.

Twenty-eight year old Janice, on the other hand, is a world poomsae champion, and a two-time SEA Games poomsae gold medalist. She is currently the head coach of the UP poomsae varsity team.
