Boyle has a bright future

At just 9 years old, Kaleb Boyle, a born and raised Londoner, has been racking up medals on the International karate stage as part of Team Canada.

Back in October, Kaleb travelled to Dublin, Ireland to represent Canada as part of a 200-person roster at the World Karate Championships (WKC). He competed in continuous sparring and creative weapons, placing 5th in the world in each category.

In January 2019, Kaleb attended the International Committee of Martial Arts (ICOMA) tournament in Montego Bay, Jamaica. There, he took home gold medals in musical weapons and traditional forms/kata, while also earning bronze medals in traditional bo and open bo.

Needless to say, this little ninja is one to be watching, as his personal goal is make it to the Olympics in 2024 or 2028.

Kaleb trains 4 to 5 days per week, mainly with his Sifu, Julian Shamuon, of Hot shot Athletics out of Cambridge, Ontario. What’s next on his schedule? Well, this April the process to make Team Canada starts all over again with provincial qualifiers coming up in April, then Nationals in June and World Championships in the fall in Niagara Falls, New York for 2019.

Something tells us this won’t be the last time you read about Kaleb Boyle.
