New Record

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

Ah­mad Amin Bodla, a Pak­istani Taek­wondo black belt broke his own Guin­ness World Record of 79 mar­tial arts full con­tact knee strikes in one minute by 108 strikes in a minute. The sec­ond record was of 58 knuckle push-ups in one minute pre­vi­ously held by an Amer­i­can, Bobby Na­toli. Bodla, with 66 knuckle push-ups in a minute, sur­passed it.

Last year, he had bro­ken the record of the Amer­i­can Raul Meza of 355 kicks in a sin­gle minute. Meza’s record was set three years ago and was un­con­tested un­til Bodla made a new one. Bodla is a uni­ver­sity stu­dent and jug­gles be­tween his mar­tial arts and aca­demic rou­tine. He has set five Guin­ness records so far and was awarded a Guin­ness World Records cer­tifi­cate in 2014 at the Pun­jab Youth Fes­ti­val.
