Brenden admits that he started the Korean martial art eight years ago after reaching 19 stone and wanting to improve his fitness. Now he fits in eight to ten hours of training each week around his busy job as National Sales Manager for Constables Mobility who convert cars to make them wheelchair accessible for customers across the UK.
He said: “I’m really pleased that all the hard work has paid off. Winning a gold and getting my second degree at the same time was absolutely amazing. Kuk Sool Won is a great sport as it’s a nice rounded combination of fitness and self defence.”
Managing Director of Constables Mobility David Constable added: “We are very proud of Brenden and his sporting success. It takes real dedication to become world class at a martial art and manage to fit your training around a very busy job like the one Brenden has at Constables.”
Now the 31-year-old has his sights set on his third degree, the next World Championships in Korea and then the 2016 Olympic Games. In the long term, Brenden says he would like to open his own Kuk Sool Won club.
Starting life in 1958 Kuk Sool Won is an all-round Korean martial art that combines a great work out with simple to use self defence. It stems from hundreds of years of martial arts involving Royal Court, Budhist and Tribal martial arts.
