While tens of thousands of 5-year-olds have enjoyed watching the Kung Fu Panda movies, a miniscule fraction of those have actually partook in the ancient martial art themselves. One such kung-fu kiddo is Calleigh Tsay of California’s Bay Area.


Last year, Calleigh appeared on NBC’s youth talent show Little Big Shots, where she both impressed and intimidated host Steve Harvey with her intense martial artistry.

Calleigh’s questions similarly befuddled Harvey. She inquired both about the lack of hair atop his head and as to why he has a beard. When he explained it was a mustache and not a beard, she asked if his brothers and sisters have them too.


Calleigh trains at Kungfu Dragon USA in Pleasanton, where she was already demonstrating her mastery of kung fu forms as a 4-year-old.

If Calleigh sticks around in the martial arts there’s no telling how far she’ll go. Just wait until she learns the nunchucks from the instructor shown above (and stand clear).
