Karate Kids Shoot For State

At this time of year, everybody's getting ready for state...but some of the best battles won't take place on a football field.

Here, at Nuon's Martial Arts, this class is also getting ready for state. Master Sam's students have been preparing all year for their state meet in Austin this weekend.

"It's pretty serious," instructor Sam Nuon said. "We've never had a state champion yet. We've done very well in our local tournament, but this is a good opportunity as far as the school goes to bring home a state championship."

The students, from ages seven up, have been getting ready for state for the entire year.
