A young athlete of Peshawar has claimed beating the world record of 347 straight arm punch strikes in a minute held by Anthony Kelly of Australia and setting a new record of most punch strikes with dumb-bells in a minute.
Ahmad Hussain demonstrated his skill at the Peshawar Press Club on Monday and struck a flurry of 412 full contact straight arm punches in a minute to surpass the record of Anthony Kelly, who figures in the Guinness Book of World Records. Hussain intends to lay claim to the record and replace Anthony in the Guinness book.
He also hit a record 148 strikes per minute with two dumb-bells weighing four kilograms each. He introduced this form of martial art to promote this sport in the country, particularly the North West Frontier Province, where healthy activities for the youth are scarce.
