May 5 (UPI) -- A martial artist in Pakistan added to his collection of world records by smashing dozens of coconuts using his head.

Black belt Muhammad Rashid set a new Guinness World Record for "Most green coconuts smashed with the head in one minute" by slamming his head down and bursting 35 coconuts.


In order to set the record Rashid was required to use his head to smash each coconut until they began to leak milk.

Video shows the martial artist as he grabbed each coconut with both hands and sent his head crashing down with a mighty blow until they began to burst.

Rashid is the founder and president of Pakistan Academy of Martial Arts and holds several other martial arts world records including "Most drink cans crushed with elbow in one minute."
