ISLAMABAD—Pak­istani Taekowndo black belt Ah­mad Amin Bodla has launched a project named ‘Solid Self De­fense (SSD)’ with an aim to pro­mote mar­tial arts among youth across the coun­try.

Talk­ing to me­dia per­sons, Bodla, who holds the record for most mar­tial arts kicks in one minute (355 kicks), said cur­rently we are work­ing on teach­ing women about self de­fense in only two weeks.

Bodla, who also holds the record for most mar­tial arts kicks in 3 min­utes (801), claimed that he had spent last eight years learn­ing self de­fense from world class masters.

“I have started this pro­gram be­cause women must know how to de­fend them­selves in dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tions. I have sys­tem­at­i­cally de­signed the course so that women can learn to de­fend them­selves in just two weeks.”

“I am also writ­ing a book on self de­fense which will be pub­lished later this year,” he said.

Bodla also holds the record for most mar­tial arts kicks in one hour (6970) and most full con­tact knee strikes in one minute (79).—APP
