Putin awarded 9th-degree taekwondo black belt, besting Chuck Norris’s rank
The World Taekwondo Federation has awarded an honorary 9th degree black belt to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Putin received the certificate and a taekwondo uniform at a ceremony in Seoul before wrapping up his visit to South Korea on Wednesday.
With the 9th degree ranking, Putin has passed the ranking of legendary martial arts superstar Chuck Norris, who only has an 8th degree black belt. Of course, Norris’s belt isn’t honorary. (Photos: AFP/AFP/Getty Images // ALEKSEY DRUZHININ/AFP/Getty Images)
