Hampshire karate star Thomas Klemz ranks second in the world

A 12-year-old boy who started karate seven years ago has won more than 70 matches and has climbed to number two in World Karate Organisation's rankings in his discipline at under-13 level.

Due to Covid-19, Thomas Klemz, from Fordingbridge in Hampshire, has been training and competing online, which allowed him to enter 20 worldwide events.

He currently practises in a custom-made dojo at the bottom of his garden which was constructed by his family.
