Young Carlos Hihi off to BJJ World Champs in LA

Gisborne's Carlos Hihi is only 8 years old but could become NZ's newest world champion when he flies off to Los Angeles in three weeks time. 

He will compete in six different martial arts events and has only been in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for eight months.

Despite that, he will compete and is the favourite at next month's Kids World BJJ Championships.
