Taekwondo is a difficult enough sport for kids without disabilities.

But that didn’t stop Toby King from working hard anyway.

The 4th grader had his right leg amputated below the knee when he was just 1 year old because of a condition called fibular hemimelia. Earlier this week, however, Toby earned his black belt in taekwondo.

Since the Tallahassee, Florida youngster needs to replace his leg every year or so, Toby has gone through 12 prosthetic legs all together.

But he has powered through it all of the same.
