A group of eight thousand Taekwondo practitioners claim to have broken a world record in Seoul, South Korea for the most people to take part in a simultaneous Taekwondo display.
These stunning photos show eight thousand people who claim to have taking part in a world-record breaking display of taekwondo that smashed the previous record.
The photos were taken in Seoul, South Korea on April 21 and show eight thousands enthusiasts performing a series of synchronised moves.
The participants are a range of ages and seem to incorporate both experienced practitioners and young children new to taekwondo, while air aerobics teams flew overhead in celebration.
The photos were taken on April 21 and show what appear to be experienced Taekwondo practitioners leading the astonishing Guiness record attempt on a green field.
They claim to have broken the previous record of 1,152 that was set in 2016 in Hyderabad, India.
However, that attempt was ratified by the Guinness World Book of Records and it is unclear if the latest attempt in South Korea matches the body’s criteria.
In order to achieve the record, every participant had to perform the martial arts routine simultaneously for a minimum of ten minutes and to a ‘reasonable standard’.
People of all ages came together to perform the breathtaking display, which was an attempt to break a record that was set in India back in 2016, which saw just 1,152 people take part.
It is unclear if the South Korean attempt actually broke the world record or not as they need to be ratified by the Guinness World record body, who ensure that certain conditions are met to break the record.
Those condition, in order to achieve the record, say that every participant had to perform the martial arts routine simultaneously for a minimum of ten minutes and to a ‘reasonable standard’.
Although it is unclear if they met the conditions, observers could be seen walking though the crowds of practitioners, some of who were just children and so could only be newcomers to the martial art.
Even if they didn’t break the record, the eight thousand people came together to create a breathtaking spectacle with all of them dressed in tradition white robes that mark them as practitioners of the martial art.
