whacks for taekwondo boy

Argentina - Black belt celebration (1 min 43 secs)

Formal spankings on the backside (whether serious or, as here, jocular) have turned out to be more prevalent in Latin American culture than we once thought.

In this clip from 2007, a young Taekwondo (martial arts) expert in Argentina has just won his Black Belt. To celebrate, he gets one whack with a real belt from each of his teammates -- 13 whacks altogether. This is said to be a "traditional ceremony".

Some of the strokes look quite painful, but he takes them like a man, and afterwards there are hugs.
