Alongside his most recent Instagram video, he added the caption: “You must be shapeless, formless, like water.”
Ibrahimovic first acquired his black-belt in taekwondo as a 17-year-old.
In 2010, he would also receive an honorary black-belt from the Italian national taekwondo team.
But his martial arts skills have not taken away from his ability to carry on performing at the very highest level on the football pitch.
Despite turning 40 years of age in October, the Swedish sensation has continued to find the back of the net for AC Milan.

Ibra returned to Milan at the end of 2019 for a second spell with the club and has not disappointed.
He has scored 33 goals in 57 games for the Italian giants, including five in 10 matches so far this season.
And the veteran footballer has also returned to the Sweden national team for the first time since 2016.
He has been capped four times by his country in 2021 but missed out on Euro 2020 due to a knee injury.
Ibra returned to the Sweden set-up for a bit-part role in their final World Cup qualifiers.
But he could not help them lose their final two games to Georgia and Spain as they missed out on automatic qualification for Qatar.
Ibra and Co now enter the play-offs but do have the benefit of being one of the six seeded sides.
The Milan man also recently had his say on former side Manchester United following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ibra netted 29 goals in 53 games for the Red Devils but has hit out at the club’s tendency to look back at their history.
He told the Guardian: “They talk too much about the past. When I went there I said: ‘I’m here to focus on the present and to make my own story.’
“But when you have too much it becomes like a loop. You have to think about the present or you should go to a hospital and clean your head.”
