Creator of spectacular human endurance world records, godfather of Isshinryu Karate in India, pioneer of modern Archery in Tamil Nadu, India's only disciple of TaeKwonDo's founder Gen Choi Hong Hi, a professional sculptor and painter, a sensational orator, a masters in social work engaged in epic projects, a zoologist and new age philosopher, Hussaini is truly a phenomenal living legend.
The world and the media at large was stunned when on 23rd Feb 2015, a man called 'HU' performed a macabre feat and became the only Indian, the only Muslim and the only human to ever crucify 'himself' by nailing his hands and legs to a wooden cross and stayed on the crucifix for an excruciating 6 minutes 7 seconds in 'meditative prayer'. There was collective disbelief, a huge public outcry and hailstorms of criticism from every quarter. A disturbed leader of the ruling party and 'HU's mentor, Dr Jayalalithaa wrote to him to desist from such painful 'Yagnas!' even if it was for her returning as chief minister. She did return as the CM of Tamil Nadu demolishing every prediction and every odd, reigniting interest on who 'HU' really is.
HU defines himself as a Mind coach. He dares you to set any target for yourself and challenges he will take you there. He was recruited as the mind coach for the Korean Archery team at the Rio Olympics and is credited for making them win all the gold medals in every category.
A Daredevil living legend with 12 human endurance world records to his credit which includes some stunning, death defying attempts that no man has ever tried to break till date like 'being in an inferno with 140 litres of petrol poured on him and being set ablaze', being bitten by 4 poisonous cobras, smashing tons of ice with his forehead and many more is a symbolic embodiment of 'the ultimate in creative genius' of meaningful accomplishments that would trigger inspiration in formative minds for centuries to come.
Syed Ali Murtuza Hussaini, popularly known as Shihan Hussaini but who insists being called just 'HU' is the new 'human ultimate'-a modern messiah of creativity.
'HU' in spite of decades of concerted efforts to discredit him by zillions of his rivals and opponents, dazzles with his spectacular achievements in 32 different fields & stands out as the epitome of knowledge exploration and a living tribute to the gigantic powers of the human mind. The greatest of legends, famed artist 'Leonardo da Vinci' who was described as a man of unquenchable curiosity and feverish inventive imagination in 13 different fields pales into less significance in factual comparison with the 'new master of explosive talent' Hussaini - 'HU' as India and the world is reluctantly waking up to this astounding reality.
