This kid gets a black belt in adorable.

This boy shows all sorts of grit while trying to figure out how to break a board in his taekwondo class.

Nothing he does seems to work, much to the amusement of his fellow students, the instructor and the parents looking on. Eventually, though, he figures it out and manages to smash the board en route to earning his white belt, which is probably the first step in a lifetime of martial arts domination.

You've gotta admire this kid's dedication and all-around determination. And if you ever come face-to-face with him in a dark alley, just remember he can unleash a world of hurt (and cute) all over you.
