Sensei RussIt is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Sensei Russ Jenkins on 24th March 2014. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

Prior to his passing Sensei Russ had handed over the day to day running of the club to the Club Committee. The committee remain dedicated in keeping the club running as he would have wished.
