Tyler Weaver is a 12-year-old who's kicking his way to the top—in fact, he currently has several world championship titles in karate!

Tyler says he's been working on his form since he was 2 years old and was inspired to start studying karate by his father, Tyler Sr. "It's very difficult, some of the moves that he does, but the young man just loves martial arts," he says. "He's been practicing all his life."

Watch Tyler's amazing talent. Watch

Even as he's flying through the air performing his favorite move, the Corkscrew, Tyler says karate makes him feel centered. "[It] also teaches you how to have self-confidence," he says.

Despite all the accolades, Tyler doesn't let the attention go to his head. "[I feel] very proud of myself," he says. "I couldn't have done it without my family and my fans and my coaches and all the support."
