A martial arts dojo which ran sessions during the Covid-19 pandemic last year is reopening a children’s class.
Head instructor Rick Pridmore will be running junior ninjutsu classes at the Bujinkan Ninjutsu Ely Dojo from next week.
He said: “Our junior training programme is adapted to benefit young students mentally and physically and develop their growth in discipline, health, fitness, confidence, knowledge and self-protection on many levels.”
Rick, who ran socially distant sessions last summer, will run junior classes at the dojo at Centre E on Barton Road for seven to 11-year-olds.
Juniors will be able to learn about ninjutsu, an ancient warrior traditional style art, as well as develop self-defence techniques and take part in ‘ninja’ games, such as escape.
Sessions start on September 16 and will run every Thursday evening from 6-7pm. First lesson is free and cost £5 thereafter.
