A self defence class for children, run by one of the highest qualified Commando Krav Maga instructors in the UK, is taking place in Yarmouth.

Becky Richardson is one of only three women worldwide to reach Level 7 and will be teaching her class entitled Super Kid at the Community Hall of Yarmouth and District, on Monday, March 25.

She said: "I will attempt my Level 8 in May and hope to become one of the first women in the world to achieve the top level in Commando Krav Maga.

"I teach boot camps across the world and have been teaching on and off the Isle of Wight for the last two years.

"This will be the first time I will open a class for Commando Krav Maga in the West Wight area and I have taught Super Kid in several of the local primary schools already."

The first class between 5pm and 6pm is free for children and their parents to come and see what it is all about

It is for ages five to 12 and is an anti-bully programme initially, which gradually progresses to teaching how to fight off predators and kidnappers.

There will also be a CKM class for adults and children over 12, between 6pm and 7.30pm.

Children and adults should wear loose sporty clothes and also bring a towel and water.
