I saw the video of the previous record holder. At the rate of 3 "kicks" per second, the person is essentially jerking his foot not kicking! Besides, the Guinness book is bit of a nuisance now-a-days. Recently, they declared an Iranian to have the biggest arms (i.e.; biceps and triceps combined) and the bodybuilding community pointed out that the guy was simply injecting synthol into his muscles!
