Boy, 10, wins taekwondo world championship title


NASHUA, N.H. (MyFoxBoston.com)-- If there ever is a new "The Karate Kid" movie, this 10-year-old boy should be casted. Nashua, N.H. resident Hayden Moses recently won two championships at the World Taekwondo Championships in Little Rock, Arkansas.

According to Moses' parents, Brian and Janet, he won two gold medal titles – the first in traditional weapons and the second in creative weapons. Moses also took home a bronze in creative forms and finished fifth in the world in traditional forms.

Moses' parents say their son, a first-degree black belt, has been practicing Tae-Kwon-Do since he was 4-years-old. The world champ also plays Little League Baseball and Pop Warner Football while maintaining a straight "A" average.

Moses was recently given a proclamation from the City of Nashua. He will be entering sixth grade in the fall.
