Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! Itís on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

Hello All,
I have been training with Sensei Steve Prior for the last 4 month after a long break from martial arts.
The new class at he Electric Club Wolverhampton teaches Chin na and Applied Karate, which compliment each other very well. I enjoy the one on one training, and would love to see some new faces to join this exciting, interesting and unique martial arts club, teaching and learning locks and complete self defence systems.
Hope to see you there

Hi all,

it is with much regret I must advise that my lovely smiley partner Penny died in Russells Hall Hospital on Saturday 21st. February at 7.05 pm, she was only 42 years old.

Pen was the reason I have continued to train and teach, she gave me confidence and pushed me to train harder and share my knowledge, she wanted me to learn more and follow my dreams.

Pen achieved 2nd Dan in Wado Ryu and 3rd. Dan in Kempo jutsu, she was a nifty puncher and could spar with the best ! her locking techniques were awesome but she never had any ego, she loved to train and coach the beginners especially, the juniors all loved her friendly cheeky attitude, she put everyone at ease.

Without Penny in the back ground our group may have finished years ago ! she was a driving force, she could not train too much in recent years due to ill health but was always involved with as much passion for what we did as day one ! she was a very special lady,

If you met and trained with Pen I am sure you will remember her kindness and smiley face perhaps take a moment to reflect, we shall all remember her ! God Bless Pen, All our Love - you were a great person and a cracking martial artist - you made us all very proud !

Hi Steve,

We met at the Mantis seminar my Sifu did a while back. Your site is interesting and I was quite surprised at the number of martial arts clubs that were around locally, it's a good resource.

All the best

Steve I still remember the early days. You always had an interest in the martial arts and we certainly went round the area looking at the different clubs and styles. I fondly remember joining JJs Club with in Wolverhampton and still relate some of the things we did from that time. I am so pleased you are doing well so in something you have always enjoyed.

Hi Steve,I am full of admiration and envy when I read all about your history till this present day. My history started in the Bruce Lee era,the first club bieng the Walsall Martial Arts Centre,in the "Ditch" being tauhgt by Mr M Holland,his invited guests.Due to its closure (fire arson) I drifted down to George st,the dojo was above a drapers shop and thats where I found my pot of gold,over the months I was privalidged to train under George Wilson,Tony Hughs and Mr Bleakman,as there were only about five kyu grades in all it was paradise.I inturn followed George and trained in Aikido at The Glebe and at Allumwell with big Anna!My pathway took me to Manor Farm,being taught Aikido by Tony Evans,Kempo,Atemijutsu,Judo and ju jutsu by Tony Hughs.I was the treasurer of Kanokwai for about three to four years before I moved on with Tonys blessing to train at the Kyu Shin Kan in Birmingham under Mr Bleakman for approx seven years. It was an honour to tread on that famous mat and being instructed by Phillip Bradley,Ian Stedman and Gordon Lugg,who unknown to me all new Tony Huges.I cant place you at Manor Farm,I use to train on Thursdays and Sundays only due to my other commitments in scouting.Ialso have a little finger missing (some clue).Your web sit and commitment is commendable,I wish you continued success.Regards R Proud.

Excellent Grading last night ! Gordon judged the students while I coached from the side, Harley, Dave, Dirk and James all passed their grades with flying colours ! very proud of them all and the spirit and effort which was shown.

Well done all !
