To celebrate The Mid Sussex Martial Arts School in its 3rd decade of operation, MSMAS are still able to offer totally FREE Judo to any young person in Sussex. This is a great idea and one that Isupport wholly. I know how much it cost me (well, I should say how much it cost my parents, really) to keep me going in Judo when I was younger. Congratulations to Roger and the team for coming up with and sustaining this idea. Everyone in Sussex, you don't know how lucky you are! Go for it.

Karate comes from a long line of Martial Arts stretching back into history, yet its training methods and philosophy are of immense relevance to modern western society.

All martial arts have these principles at their heart to a greater or lesser extent. It is these ideals that are stressed by the Reiwaryu Ryushinkan School of Karate do.
