(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Dae-ho = A 24-year-old young man who lost one leg after stepping on a land mine a month before his military discharge was reborn as the world’s best disabled Taekwondo expert 40 years later.

According to Larose.VIP’ coverage on the 24th, Kim Hyeong-bae (65), who works as a private taxi driver in Busan, received the certificate of ‘World’s Best Taekwondo Taekwondo Professional for the Disabled’ from the British Guinness Association on the 20th. He, who was promoted to 7th dan in Taekwondo in June 2019, recently passed the Guinness Association examination for his application.

He previously challenged the Guinness Book of World Records at the Dongbu Sujeong Gymnasium in Busan at 8 p.m. on January 24th. Lee Sang-jeong, a member of the Busan Taekwondo Association’s senior council (official 9th ​​dan), and Song Hwa-soo, a member of the World Taekwondo Headquarters Kukkiwon advisory committee (official 9th ​​dan), took video of the kicking, poomsae, breaking, and sparring in the presence of two witnesses and seniors and juniors. Sent to the Guinness Institute of Great Britain.

His current Guinness challenge is evaluated as a human victory achieved over despair. In 1983, a month before his discharge from the military, he participated in a search mission in the demilitarized zone along the ceasefire line despite his superiors’ dissuasion. He stepped on a landmine and lost his left leg below the knee. He arrived by helicopter at the hospital, and the feeling of loss when his leg was cut off was too great for a young man to bear. It is said that he endured pain for 15 days and eventually cut off his tattered leg. His dreams of becoming a Taekwondo instructor and action actor were shattered, and he wasted his time drinking for three years after being discharged from the military.

However, I made up my mind again, studied, entered Dong-A University, passed the public recruitment for the Busan Transportation Corporation, got married, and started a family with one son and one daughter. And at the age of 40, with a prosthetic leg, he resumed Taekwondo, which he loved so much, and earned the 4th to 7th dan ranks in succession, and also completed a full marathon. He later found out that he was the top Taekwondo expert with a prosthetic leg, and so he belatedly made a bid for the Guinness Book of World Records.

Mr. Kim said, “After losing one leg, I had never seen or even thought of a case where a disabled person with a prosthetic leg did Taekwondo. My wife dissuaded me from doing Taekwondo, saying that it is dangerous for a person with a disabled leg. However, I need to have the physical strength to work as a station attendant until retirement age. “I started Taekwondo again because I needed it,” he recalled.

He said, “I started running to strengthen my legs, but my prosthetic leg got blisters and scars. When the wounds healed, I started running again and going to the gym. As I repeated this, I was able to gradually stabilize my kicks and maintain my balance. Afterwards, I was able to stabilize my kicks and maintain my balance.” “I won a prize and completed the full marathon course,” he said.

He said, “I am so honored and happy to be listed as a record holder in the Guinness World Records. Memories of my weakened health while living with a prosthetic limb, the days of despair when my future was dark, wandering, pain, and trying Taekwondo again pass by like a flash of light.”

He said, “I lost my leg while serving in the military, but I am proud to think that I was able to protect the safety of the country and people through my sacrifice. While in the military, I faced North Korea at the cease-fire line and felt keenly the value of freedom. I told my young friends who were riding a taxi. “When I tell the story, everyone says they are surprised and touched,” he said with a laugh.
