Offaly students learn self-protection tactics with Karate instructor

Transition Year students from Gallen Community School, Ferbane, have been brushing up on their self-defence skills with Karate instructor, Ken Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick is a Karate and Self-Protection Coach from the Mullingar-based Kyokushinkai Karate Club and he facilitated a Self-Protection Programme at the Offaly school recently. 

The students gained valuable lessons in the art of defence and positive feedback was received from all participants.

Fitzpatrick hopes to return to the school for the next term to continue to educate the students.

Details of the programme and similar can be sought by calling 086 1676358.
