Run by David Mur­ray and Al­lan McKean, op­er­ate groups at var­i­ous places in the town.

In­struc­tor David said: “It’s about get­ting more peo­ple to take part in karate as it can help so much.

“It teaches re­spect, man­ners and it’s a good thing to get into.

“We have a few classes in the town and we can of­fer to teach peo­ple karate with PTSD and dis­abil­i­ties. Peo­ple feel it’s out­side their com­fort zone but there’s po­ten­tial for dis­abil­ity karate to take off.

“There’s no bet­ter time to start with it be­ing added to the next Olympics.”
