HYDERABAD: Aashman Taneja, a 5-year-old boy from Hyderabad, has made a Guinness World Record in Taekwondo for the most full-contact knee strikes in one hour non-stop (team).
A phenomenal Taekwondo player, Aashman is a USA World Open Taekwondo Silver medalist.
The young athlete successfully achieved more than 1200 knee strikes for the Guinness World Record for the most full contact knee strikes in one-hour non-stop.
When asked about his inspiration, Aashman said that his sister Myra Taneja got two Guinness world records, which is why he wanted to secure the world record title.
Aashman’s father, Ashish Taneja said, “My son is now practising for another Guinness world record and we hope that he will achieve it.”
Like a champ, Aashman says “Success is no accident. It is a result of hard work, dedication, passion and most of all love for what I am doing.”
