Holy Cow! The Fattest Taekwondo I Have Ever Seen

        This is the fattest Taekwondo guy I have ever seen, He is ITF Taekwondo with some group called Taekwondo America (oh the same name as the one in the movie Foot Fist Way). This guy is doing a form and then spars in 2 matches. This was in 2007. Hopefully now in 2014 he has lost a ton of weight…

        As crazy and wild as this is I have to give the fat guy credit for not being afraid to show up at a tournament with many people watching and competing. He even won his first match. Of course in a real fight he would be killed in a matter of seconds. This is point touch karate which is typical ITF style tournament sparring. Even a super fat guy can win!

        This guy claims his dobok was specially made for his extreme size.

    The michelin man does Taekwon-do?

    Makes me wonder how big he was when he started…? Surely on the road to that rank he’s lost some weight. I have a friend who joined TKD weighing in at over 450 pounds and he lost over 100 of that going from white belt to black belt.

      That’s pretty awesome. And that is what is great about Taekwondo. If you are trained correctly you will lose tons of weight and be faster. Taekwondo is a full body workout, every muscle and every bone!

      I hope he gets serious and cuts a lot of weight as he progresses, because it’s not healthy for any part of his body to be like that. He is like ten times more susceptible to joint and muscle injury being that heavy.

    Awwww, actually this guy warms my heart. He’s not claiming to be anything he’s not, it looks like he’s out there trying to get fit. It is incredibly difficult for people this heavy to even move and look at what he is telling his body to do! He is obviously pushing himself very hard, has a noble goal and a strong mental resolve to get fit. Now……if he were teaching a class, then we’d have a problem.

      I agree. I found the video randomly and thought it was interesting and yes, it is funny, but then it is also inspiring to many people struggling to lose weight. I do give this guy a ton of credit! But hopefully he really does lose more weight and does not stay at one level and does not give up. It is pretty interesting to see such a large person sparring at a tournament. I am sure all eyes were on him, yet he did not care and still competed. Pretty cool attitude!
