Karate Kid Takes on Sean Murphy on TLA

Nine-year-old martial arts champ Kaelyn Whaley in action on NBC4

TLA's Sean Murphy can help viewers navigate around the toughest traffic jams.

But he was no match today for 9-year-old Kaelyn Whaley, a World Champion martial artist.

Kaelyn recently helped raise a million dollars for local students at Otis College of Art and Design.

The 4th grader from San Diego says she had a lot more to accomplish, possibly becoming Hollywood's next action star.

"I'd like to be the next Karate Kid., cause I think it's about time a girl had a chance,." she said.
