10-year-old martial arts champ wins six gold medals at World Tournament

WICHITA, Kansas – Competing at this month’s World Tournament in Spain, 10-year-old blackbelt Zach Thomas captured a total of six gold medals in martial arts.

In the medal rounds, Zach received perfect scores in all six divisions.

Thomas told KSN, “I had a lot of people in my division and I really didn’t know what to expect. I went there with all I had and just did it. I hope to get to the pros and I really want to be one of the best people out there and someday teach my kids how to do it.”

Training with Wichita Airstrike, Zach started martial arts shortly after turning 2. He’s currently ranked top five in the nation in his division (11 and under) in multiple categories.
