16-year old sets crazy Taekwondo world record for broken blocks – with his head
In a very weird, but incredibly impressive display of martial arts prowess, a 16-year old Bosnian named Kermin Ahmetspahic set a new Taekwondo world record. In the span of 35 seconds, he managed to destroy 111 concrete blocks. And he did it all with his head.
Ahmetspahic will take his place as the Guinness Book record holder, beating the mark set in 2016 by Oliver Gimsehl. And Ahmetspahic didn’t just beat the record, he crushed it. Gimsehl destroyed 65 blocks, almost half of what the new record holder did.
It’s an odd way to set the record, but whatever works. Ahmetspahic looks like he is auditioning for a spot in the next Tekken game where headbutts are his special attack. Maybe when he gets a little older he can audition for the role of Ram Man in a Masters of the Universe movie. Or maybe he can move to the hills and assert his dominance as the king of the mountain goats.
Or maybe he can enter Taekwondo tournaments and dominate his opponents. Yeah, that one seems a bit more likely.
Whatever his future, just remember, if you are in a fight with Ahmetspahic, whatever you do, don’t hit him in the top of the head. You will probably break your hand.
