5-year-old makes record in taekwondo
You would think a 5-year-old would be more interested in jumping in ball pits or sliding from helter skelter. Think again. Because this 5-year-old boy is already making world records.
Aashman Taneja from Hyderabad has made a Guinness world record in Taekwondo for the most full contact knee strikes in one-hour non-stop.
Aashman is an incredible Taekwondo player and an athlete at a very young age. He is a USA World Open Taekwondo Silver medalist and a proud Guinness World Record holder now. He attempted the Guinness World Record for the most full contact knee strikes in one-hour non-stop and successfully achieved more than 1200 knee strikes.
He is now practising for another Guinness world record already.
And that’s not all. His sister too has got her name in Guinea’s world of records. Now this is some record-breaking family, we say!
Usually associated with the Japanese martial art Karate, Taekwondo originated in Korea around 2,000 years ago. The Taekwondo uniform is called the “Dobok”. A white belt is included upon the first rank, and the belt color would change as one advances in their ranks.
