New base for kickboxing club
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.
