Netherfield residents to get kick out of free karate sessions at new dojo


A Netherfield-based karate instructor wants his local community to start getting a kick out of the sport by inviting them to take part in free training sessions at his new dojo near Colwick.

James Martin, of Meadow Road, is to put on the free Sunday morning training sessions for fellow Netherfield residents at his Bunbu Ryodo Karate Academy, on Little Tennis Lane, in the hope of getting them interested in one of the world’s most popular sports.

As well as attracting Netherfield residents, James, who is one of the Midland’s most successful karate instructors, is also keen to get people from across Gedling borough involved and taking part in the martial art at his new academy which opened its doors recently.

James said: “My new dojo has direct links to the national team and we also have a full-time school here”
