Why is judo superstar Brian Jacks touring the UK in a Black Cab?
Plan Insurance Brokers are very proud to sponsor Brian Jacks, Martial Arts legend, on a promotional tour of his autobiography “Mindset of a Champion.”
Brian's dad was a cabbie so, in a nod to his childhood, he will be travelling with co-author Marc Gingell around the country in a traditional black taxi, visiting various locations.
Brian is one of Britain's best loved athletes, and is also famous for his performance in BBC Hit Series "Superstars".
He is an all time record holder on the show for parallel bar dips and squat thrusts, do you remember how many he did?
When Brian approached us requiring insurance for his TX4, lent by C&S in London, it was only natural that we offer to help and be a part of his incredible journey. The tour started on the 24th April, and will finish at the end of July.
Brian Jacks: "Mindset of a Champion"
Following his early days, all the way through to his success at the Munich Olympics, his Superstars career and beyond, the book is an honest, inspiring and entertaining roller coaster ride through the life of Britain's best-loved Judo great.
You can be in for a chance to win a signed copy by entering our #PlanCab competition on Social Media (read below for more details). An if you can't wait, the book is on sale on Brian's website.
