A Skipton-based community group are celebrating after having a successful open day during the first weekend in July.
Supported by Club and Communities Officer, Rashid Hussain, and coach Mo Osman, The Martial Way Wrestling Club opened its doors on Sunday 3rd July with a great mix of youngsters and adults signing up to the first session.
On the day participants got an introduction to wrestling with some basic coaching aimed at giving them a greater understanding of the sport and what they can expect from regular club activities.
The idea to set up a club in North Yorkshire came from local man Amer Alam who wanted to provide activities for the community to reduce anti-social behaviour and improve physical health as well as mental health and wellbeing.
“We are delighted to have set up a wrestling club which will give youngsters something productive to do each week alongside an adult session. We are appealing for local people to come and give wrestling a try. You do not have to be fit to join, but your fitness will definitely improve with regular classes” said Amer Alam.
