/ Brayden Bartelds – Taekwon-do

Brayden actively trains as a 3rd degree blackbelt for Gladiators Martial Arts academy and has carried his club’s name to countless tournaments around the country and the globe- always placing and bringing home a gold. Brayden consistently brings his all to every training session, pushing his limits and setting the tone for other competitors – this all done with a friendly smile. Brayden spends his evenings after school as an instructor, teaching children ages 5-15 Taekwon-do, then he transitions into training himself after the children classes have finished. During lock down he created and filmed multiple zoom classes for his students so they could keep training. Brayden was training for 2020 worlds in Slovenia which was unfortunately cancelled due to the pandemic.
