60-year-old Nam Seung-hyun, leader of ‘3.1m mid-air break’, entered the Guinness Book of Records

Nam Seung-hyeon ( pictured below ), leader of the Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration, has succeeded in challenging the Guinness World Association’s oldest aerial breaking record. It is a meaningful new record set on his 60th birthday.

On the 23rd, at the Kukkiwon Central Training Center in Seoul, Nam stepped on the platform and jumped into the air to break a 3.1m tall pine board.

Nam’s successful ‘3.1m mid-air break’ is the first Guinness World Record. Alisio Zhao, superintendent of the World Guinness Association, who watched the challenge, said, “The breaking of Nam has not been recorded in the Guinness record, and today’s record has been registered as the first record of the oldest aerial breaking by the World Guinness Association.”

Director Nam is a skilled player who has won three consecutive World Taekwondo Hanmadang total breaking championships from 1999 to 2001. After graduating from the Department of Taekwondo at Yongin University, he received a doctorate in physical education from Gangneung University. He is a 9th dan in Taekwondo and a holder of a first-class international instructor license, and he prepared for this challenge three years ago.

Director Nam, who has been promoting Taekwondo through steady training and striving to nurture his juniors, took on a new challenge as a turning point in his life at the age of 60. Director Nam said, “Now that I am 60 years old, I thought I should give back the benefits I received from the world.” 카지노사이트
