Pakistan’s youngest taekwondo star is a 9-year-old girl from Swat!

Taekwondo is one of the oldest forms of martial arts that dates back to over 2000 years ago.

The art requires the practitioners to have high amounts of discipline. Many try it out all over the world, but only a few can really stick with it.

Martial arts is really popular in Pakistan too, most schools offer martial arts classes as extracurricular activities. Students love being a part of these classes, but at younger ages, it’s usually unlikely that these kids would do something with the skill, or even develop it to a level where they’d be able to do something with it in the future.

Ayesha Ayaz won bronze at the Fujairah Taekwondo Open Championship.

Ayesha Ayaz is a 9-year old student from Swat, Pakistan.

She has been participating in various Taekwondo competitions for a few years now. Her father Ayaz Naik, is a martial arts teacher. His daughter was so inspired by him watching him teach other kids that she wanted to learn too. Turns out, she’s a natural!

Ayesha is Pakistan’s youngest Taekwondo practitioner to win at an international event.

Ayesha has just become the youngest female athlete to bag a gold medal internationally in Taekwondo!

She just came back to Pakistan after gaining victories in the 8th Fujairah Open Taekwondo Championship Dubai.

She has been learning the art since she was 3 years old, most toddlers don’t even walk or run very well at that age.

This isn’t her first win, she has been participating in many local championships for years. She’s also won national championships 3 times already.

Ayesha, 8, with her brothers Zaryab Khan, 7, and Zeeyab Khan, 5. The three siblings and their father are Taekwondo practitioners.

The fact that her age hasn’t even hit the double digits yet and she’s out here winning literal gold medals is amazing.

We can’t wait to see her journey as an athlete as she grows up and continues to annihilate her opponents!
