Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills.

“Absolutely amazing… you’re representing us well. I didn’t know that side of you,” one of his followers wrote on Facebook.

In 2020 while serving as governor of Machakos county, Mutua revealed he was an expert in karate, judo, and kung fu.

“I have been training since I was 9 years old. I’m also a black belt holder,” he disclosed.

Mutua mentioned that he developed an interest in the sport after realizing he was very flexible, fast, and agile.

At 21 years, Mutua secured a chance to travel to the US while he enrolled in temple kung fu, a softer type of martial art in which they were taught how to map human bodies.

“When I was about nine years old, there was somebody who taught us sort-of kind of karate. It’s Japanese, and after that, I did Korean Taekwondo. In Taekwondo, you use more kicking. But later on in life when I was in the US studying, I did temple kung-fu which is more of the softer martial arts,” he said.
