A new judo club opened in High Town Community Sports and Arts Centre last night.
Luton School of Judo, which already hosts classes at Inspire Sports Village, was officially opened at its new venue by local resident, Beds Police and Crime Commissioner Olly Martins.
Mr Martins joined in the judo session and even allowed himself to be thrown onto his back in a judo demonstration.
The club offers adult and children classes and hopes to continue its members’ past successes at the new venue.
Over the years, club members have achieved three gold World Masters Championship titles, ten gold British Masters Championship titles and two gold Commonwealth Masters Championship titles among many others.
Chief instructor Chris Hobbs won the BJC Coach of the year award in 2013 and Darren Rolph was runner up for Junior coach of the year and club administrator of the year.
