Born without arms, Jessica Cox could have succumbed to the low expectations that ushered her into this world. In spite of them all, she earned two black belts in Taekwondo, graduated from college, and learned to swim, drive a car, fly an airplane, surf, scuba dive, and live independently using her feet in ways others who take their hands for granted can only imagine.

She holds the title of the first person without arms to get a black belt in the American Taekwondo Association and the Guinness World Record for the first pilot to fly with her feet.

Rightfooted, the Documentary
In November 2011, Jessica teamed up with Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker Nicholas Spark to begin production of
a documentary chronicling Jessica’s life. This is the story of one woman’s courage, determination, love, and faith.
