Pakistani claims world record for most kicks in one hour

Published: February 23, 2012

LAHORE: Pakistani Ahmad Amin Bodla on Thursday claimed to have broken the world record for the most number of martial arts kicks in one hour.

Bodla, who attempted the record at Children Library Complex in Lahore, managed 6,370 kicks in one hour. He broke the previous record of 2,982 kicks held by Indian Jayanth Reddy in 21 minutes and 46 seconds.

He had invited Guinness Book of World Records officials, but they had asked for 4,600 pounds to officiate the record attempt. He then asked local officials to look over it.

Bodla will now send the attempt video to Guinness Book of World Records, which can take up to six to seven months to verify.

    I thought the headline was catchy enough until I saw the video. ‘6,370 kicks in one hour’ seems impressive, but that can hardly be called a kick!

    My personal record is 93 kicks in 30 seconds from foot on the ground to kick shield at waist height. Each kick is brought back down to floor level before kicking the pad again Muai Thai style.

    At first I thought he was warming up for kicks, but when I realized those were the kicks, I almost puked.

    Pakistan has broken the world record in one more sphere, should register its name in Guinness Book of World Records as a country having issued record number of denials to accusations made by several countries against it.

    If those are “kicks”, them my 10 year old niece does much better than this dude. No wonder, the Guinness Book comitte did not even bother to look at them.
