President Barack Obama Shows Off His Tae Kwon Do Skills

Saw this in the Financial Times this morning: President Barack Obama shows off his tae kwon do skills as President Lee Myung-Bak looks approving at the presidential palace in Seoul today. Mr Obama struck his pose after his South Korean counterpart gave him a tae kwon do uniform and black belt as a gift during their summit talks.
The president is known to have studied the martial art for four years from 2001, when he was a junior senator in Illinois. He took just as firm a stance politically today when he joined forces with President Lee to pressure North Korea to fall in line and return to nuclear talks.
