JENNY BRAMMER'S run of success shows no sign of ending and she just can't stop smiling about it.Earlier this year she scooped Gold and Silver medals at national competition level and, at the August grading, was awarded the trophy for best student, proving her to be a complete all round martial artist, in both the sport and technical side of taewon-do.Not completely satisfied with this success, Jenny decided to "have a go" at the long-standing family favourite TV show Gladiators.The process to becomming a gladiator is certainly a long and arduous journey but Jenny has made startling progress, flying through the initial testing stages, and has now been selected to enter the final from which the ultimate gladiators are chosen. She says: "It was a long, gruelling 3 hour physical session, including exercises like standing jumps, seated medicine ball throw, chin dips and the killer "crocodile walk". The 3 hour session seemed to fly by once it had started. However, the waiting at the start was nerve racking enough but nothing compared to the TV interview that you have to do, to test your personality on screen, but they've asked me back so I must have been OK. I don't think I could have done it with out my taekwon-do background, it really has helped me develop mentally as well as physically."For details of taekwon-do clubs in Devon, contact Jenny's instructor Guy Southard on 07771 863890Pictured right, is Jenny at her recent grading award, with fellow club members Oliver Chander, Nicholas Jacques and Joseph Macefield.
