At the WAKO championships held in Dublin about a month and a half ago Sean Brady put the kickboxing world on notice when he took Gold at the event. Brady is only fifteen years old too. The local high school student is also a talented footballer as well and with all of these recent achievements at such a young age he is quickly on the rise in the kickboxing world.
Before the gold medal, Brady was already a four time national champion. How did he achieve all of this success at such a young age? His father Bernard explained the culture in his family “This family lives and breathes kickboxing.” So, with the constant help, support and influence of his family along with his own dedication and hard work he became a gold medal winning world champion.
Sean had spent the last four years preparing and training for the event after he heard at a competition in 2012 that the 2016 WAKO championships would be held in Dublin, Ireland. As for the future, Brady will be moving up to the junior division next year where he plans to remain for three years before he moves onto the senior division at age eighteen. He will continue to compete in the WAKO championships so long as his schedule with his studies will allow him to do so.
