Karate kid aiming for high blue belt

Eight-year old Kaleb Powell has only been doing karate for about a year, but is already going for his high blue belt. Kaleb is a very well behaved kid and says his goal, someday, is to be a seventh-degree black belt.

He says he learns from observing.

"I watch the older classes," said Kaleb. "I watch the black belt and brown belt classes. It's fun to do because I get to learn how to defend myself."

Kaleb says his favorite part of karate is using the "sticks."

He attends karate twice a week while maintaining above average grades.
