In any sport, the desire and discipline of a young athlete determines just how far that athlete can go. For WITN's Player of the Week, Christian Buffaloe, his discipline has taken him around the world.
Buffaloe competes in Kyokushin Karate, full contact, at the age of 11 and he is not only one of the best competitors in the United States but the world.
Over the weekend Christian Buffaloe won the 2011 Kyokushin Karate Youth Championship in Los Angeles and now he;s headed to Japan for a shot at the world title.
WITN's Bill DiNicola caught up with this incredible young man and found out that this 11 year-old packs an awesome punch.
