BOSTON Judo Club will be hosting two taster sessions later this month.

The classes, held on August 20, will be open to youngsters both of primary and secondary school ages.

The primary school youngsters (aged seven and above) will be invited to a session from 10-11.30am.

The afternoon session (1.30-3pm) is open to secondary school-aged kids.

Classes will be held at the Conservative Club, Main Ridge.

There is no need to pre-book and sessions cost £2 per child.

Judo jackets will be provided but youngsters are asked to wear tracksuit/jogging suit style trousers and round-neck T-shirts.

All piercings must be removed.

Boston Judo Club recently taught 66 children throughout four classes at Kirton Middlecott Scool.

Coaches Richard Gregory and Dave Jacklin were assisted by Dave Lovelace and Jordon Gregory, as the pupils were taught the hands-on combat.

Youngsters learned basic throws and safe landings.

The sessions came courtesy of a £500 grant from the Colin Batts Family Trust.

Schools interested in judo classes can log on to www.bostonjudoclub.btck.co.uk for details.

The club meets at the Conservative Club on Mondays and Thursdays (7pm – juniors, 8pm – seniors).
