Sunday  23 | 09 | 2018  One of the things that I notice recently running a Judo Club is the number of times I am contacted by potential students about joining.

Saturday  24 | 03 | 2018 A one day IGAS martial arts course at Lee-on-Solent. I have been asked to take a session on this one. What will it be I wonder?
