Hyde schoolboy one of the youngest taekwondo blackbelts


Nine year old Toby walker who stands at just 4ft tall has become one of the youngest holders of a Taekwondo black belt.

The Hyde youngster has been fighting since he was five and has quickly worked his way through the various belts. Toby had collected 13 different belts, learnt Korean and wrote a thesis on Taekwondo before earning his blackbelt.

He said "It makes me really happy to think that I'm only one of a few people that have a blackbelt at my age, I would really like to be a teacher and I know I can help people that are lower grades than me".

Toby trains at Astley Sports College in DUKINFIELD with Trident Taekwondo. He has also recently won a gold medal at the British Championships.
