“Giving back what I was taught,” man instructs Martial Arts amid cancer battle
Ken Bent is in the middle of chemotherapy for his stage four cancer. Continuing to teach Martial Arts has been a form of medicine for him.
“I just wanna stay busy and doing things,” Bent said.
He has been teaching Martial Arts for more than thirty years across Dane County, and now has a Legacy Martial Arts in Monona. Bent instructs a sport that practices patience, resilience, and fighting. All three tools Bent preaches to his students on a daily basis have made their way into his battle with cancer off the mats.
His friend for 30 years, Russell Topper, says Bent comes in on even his worst days after chemo treatments with a smile on his face.
“I see working with these kids is medicine for him,” Topper said.
Cancer started in Bent’s kidneys then traveled to his colon. Two years ago he had part of his intestines removed and thought that was the end. Cancer came back in his liver.
“I am doing okay. I am surrounded by a lot of love,” Bent said.
