Boston’s police force could soon be bolstered by some martial arts expertise.

That’s because 25 police cadets from the town have been getting to grips with mat action at Old Leake’s TKMA club.

Taking part in a lesson which lasted for an hour-and-a-half, the youngsters were all given an introduction to martial arts, including learning kicks, self defence and joint locks to help them in their proposed future careers.

As a thank you, the cadets presented the club with a cheque, which will be spent on new equipment.
