NEW KARATE KID: 11-year-old Biloela girl Mykala Brown won gold in the 11 years and under mixed Kata at the Australian championships recently.

MYKALA Brown has already conquered Queensland and Australia - now she has world domination in her sights.

The 11-year-old Biloela girl won a gold medal at the recent Shotokan Karate National Championships in Gladstone.

Mykala won gold in the 11 years and under mixed Kata, which is a set of defensive moves similar to a dance.

She also narrowly missed standing on the dais in the Kumite (fighting), finishing fourth.

“I was happy and surprised,” the Callide Valley's newest Australian champion said.

Mykala's national achievements follow her state success, where she won gold in the 11 years and under Kumite and silver for Kata.

This Biloela Karate Kid has her eyes on the world championships on the Gold Coast in 2012.

Currently a purple belt, she wants to obtain her black belt, but she has four more belts to go through before she reaches such a distinguished level.

She said it took a lot of hard work for her medals, since starting in the Biloela Dojo.

Ten Biloela students attended the national titles, where they trained under Kancho Kanazawa 10th Dan and his son Sensei Nobuaki, from Japan.

Jade West grabbed silver in the Jiyu Ippon Kumite and silver in the team Kata event with Caitlin Tansey.

Dusty-Rose Davis took a bronze medal in the Kata and Biloela Sensei Sandra West a bronze in the open masters Kata.
