One Nasty Knockout at the 2011 World Taekwondo Championships

To those who ever thought of Taekwondo as a peaceful art, here's to the nonbelievers...

As in any combat sport in which striking is allowed, the knockout is the most entertaining result to any fighting match. To hell with those stereotypical images of monotonous forms and meditiation commonly associated with Taekwondo! Iran's Farzad Abdollahi makes his opponent eat foot! Just as his opponent throws a spinning back kick, Abollahi is waiting, and delivers the perfect counter.

The World Taekwondo Federation's biannual World Taekwondo Championships tournament concluded yesterday in Korea. The Iran Men's team clinched the overall title, to dethrone the longstanding Korean TKD team.
