Kukkiwon, The World Taekwondo Headquarters, which is part of the South Korean Government, have conferred​ an honorary 5th degree black belt to Tiger Shroff at an event in Mumbai on July 30, 2014. After the massive success of his debut film, Sajid Nadiadwala’s Heropanti and after winning a lot of hearts, Tiger Shroff ​received yet​ another honour.

Taekwondo is the most popular Martial Art the world over. As self defense training is the need of the hour, for both, children and ​w​omen, Kukkiwon believes Mr. Tiger Shroff is the best role model to help in inspiring the citizens to learn how to protect themselves. The actor displayed some stunts at the event.

Tiger has a very strong youth connect and a few words that come to mind for him would be fitness freak, disciplined, hard worker and learner. These qualities explain the reason why he deserves this. It is a huge honour for the actor and that too coming so early on in his career when he has just taken his first step.
