KARATE kid Alfie Byrne delivers a knockout blow — after becoming a black belt at the age of SIX.

And the little belter is believed to be Britain’s youngest expert after a gruelling 90-minute exam.

Alfie was taught “sport karate” — similar to kickboxing — by his dad Ed, an instructor at a club in Indian Queens, Cornwall.

Ed, 37, said: “Ever since Alfie could walk he did punches and kicks and begged us to let him do karate.”

Terry Saxon, of the World United Martial Arts Federation, said: “He could be a future champion.”

Wow, his dad taught him. That just adds TONS more of credibility to his black belt.

Ed, 37, said: "Ever since Alfie could walk he did punches and kicks and begged us to let him do karate."

Yeah, he begged huh? Can anyone imagine this situation?

A loud, high-pitched screech of, "I WANNNAAA LEEAAARN KROTTYYYYY!!!" :sad2: Accompanied by crocodile tears, a bright red face, and snot bubbling out of his nose. Then when the parents give in, his face would return to normal in under 5 seconds.

Then when he does take class, he'll have the attention span of a fucking gnat, and not really learn anything. Consequently, he gets his BB for just showing up and pumping money into the system.

...He'll be swirlied like any other freshman in highschool.

Yeah, for a six year old kid and implying he did it straight.

No not for a test.

Dosn't this make you want to go find the first idiot you see on the street and beat 6 types of shi'te out of him.But that would be wrong.So I'd have to make do with my Bag.

You guys are taking "knockout" too literally. It's just a eye-catcher to make you read the rest of the article.

One, I seriously doubt the ability of a little kid to generate enough power to knock out another kid, or even the viciousness of it. No doubt, yes, he could bite your ankles clean off, but the ability to knockout someone else? Highly improbable.

Two: Googling his name brings up nothing relevent, even with the words "knockout" or "fight" incorperated. If he really KO'ed another kid, you'd sure bet there would be more information on it. The martial arts community would be getting heavy fire by now, if 6 year olds were KO'ing each other.

Three: The probability of parents letting kids into a tournament where such contact would occur, or even the probability of that kind of tournament existing.

Don't worry guys, you aren't being shown up by a 6 year old.

Ever since he could walk? So let's assume that is age 2. Now assuming he would actually beable to learn techniques that means he got his Black Belt in 3 years.

Which means even though I have seen 2 years olds who don't even know what the **** a trash can is, let a lone a roundhouse tells you something.

Could be the future champion? Until he realizes that being hit by a real fighter hurts.
