We couldn’t find a picture of a Taekwondo master chopping tiles, so this fellow chopping bricks would have to do. Image by Arak Rattanawijittakorn (via Shutterstock).
Last month on an episode of Lo Show Dei Record, an Italian version of Record Breakers, Lisa Dennis smashed her way through 923 roof tiles in a minute. The Taekwondo expert had previously broken the record for smashing a thousand of them in 83.98 seconds. This incredible video, seen below, shows her amazing feat in front of a live audience.
Her husband, Chris Pitman, holds the male record for smashing roof tiles. In 2013, he smashed his way through a thousand tiles. This was achieved on the 19 August 2013 in Bromley. As well as the adjudicators for Guinness World Records, this was captured for posterity on Blue Peter. We also have the video clip below.
Again, thanks to the mighty YouTube, we also see Chris and Lisa smash their way through some roof tiles in record time. This record was achieved in April 2013.
Just to round things off, here’s a 23 minute long film on the record-breaking couple created by the Virtue Taekwon-do club.
If the couple coming up to Cumbria to break the record for smashing slate tiles, they are more than welcome to do so. We at Cumbria Roofing cannot fault their endeavours.
