Vladimir Putin Awarded Grandmaster Status in Taekwondo Even Though He Doesn’t Do Taekwondo

“Russian president Vladimir Putin has been  awarded the highest rank in taekwondo, giving him honorary grandmaster  status.

It means the president has attained a higher  ranking than former US martial artist Chuck Norris. The actor has an  eight-degree black belt, while Mr. Putin has a ninth-degree.

The president does not  practice taekwondo, but holds a black belt in Judo and has been awarded an  eighth Dan in the martial art by the International Judo Federation.”

Oh Putin doesn’t study taekwondo? He practices Judo? That’s adorable, now give him the 9th degree black belt and grandmaster status before he wrestles a bear and kicks your ass. If I ruled an entire country I’d probably pull off power moves like this too. Shoot bow and arrows shirtless. Get 9th degree black belts in something he doesn’t even practice. Your move, Chuck Norris.
