Children and young people on a karate course will be given advice and guidance on anti-bullying techniques and knowledge, and adults will get a more technical and practical combat approach.

Joe Ellis, Chairman of the National Association of Karate and Martial Art Schools (NAKMAS), and Chief Instructor of the Kent Karate Schools and Kent Autistic Karate, is taking his unique flavour of karate to Tisbury on March 23.

Ellis, clinically diagnosed autistic as an adult, is passionate about spreading karate to all children and adults, and especially to others on the spectrum.

Peter Manning, 7th Dan, head of the Traditional Shotokan Karate Association, and a resident of Mere, is hosting the course. He said: ‘Joe has been coming to Wiltshire for over 30 years to teach on courses for me, but for this one, he brings years of anti-bullying knowledge and skills especially useful for young people being bullied, sadly an issue which rears its head only too frequently these days.”
