BRID­GEND War­riors Kick­box­ing and Fit­ness Club has opened the doors to its new venue.

The pop­u­lar club can now be found at the YMCA site on Angel Street. An open night was or­gan­ised to show the gym to the pub­lic and also raise aware­ness.

Coun­cil­lor David White helped the club with money from the Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Fund, which helped pur­chase new equip­ment.

Cllr White said: “It was a hon­our to at­tend the event and to sup­port the club us­ing funds from the com­mu­nity ac­tion fund, where a sum of money is awarded to each coun­cil­lor to spend in their ward.

“It just shows how the fund is a pos­i­tive ini­tia­tive and a small amount of money can make pos­i­tive changes for bet­ter and a dif­fer­ence to a com­mu­nity or to a club.”

Many peo­ple at­tended the open day in­clud­ing the Mayor of Brid­gend, John McCarthy and his wife.

Brid­gend War­riors is an estab­lished kick­box­ing club that has been based in Brid­gend cen­tre for 20 years. It is run by life-long mar­tial artist Jeff Copp (7th Dan), who is also the head of the Welsh Kick- box­ing Union.

The club also com­petes at lo­cal and na­tional level and will be send­ing mem­bers to rep­re­sent Wales at this year’s World United Mar­tial Arts Cham­pi­onship.
