Meet the karate ace from Netherfield who is hoping to give rivals the chop when he represents his country on the world stage next month.
James Martin, of Meadow Road, has been called up to represent England in the Karate World Championships in Madrid this October, alongside other hopefuls from across the country.
As well as competing in the sport himself, James also acts as an instructor at his two Bunbu Ryodo dojos in Colwick and Rushcliffe.
James said: “Despite being the oldest team member, I hope my 25 years of training may prove valuable”
James will be the only England team member to enter three disciplines at the competition.
He hopes to match the achievements of former England coach, Rob Bingham and Universities Champion, James Lee by bringing home a medal for his country.
