From there it has gone from strength to strength to satisfy the demand for high quality Martial Arts tuition in Cumbria and the North of England. There are also very successful Clubs in Brampton, Cockermouth, Egremont, Haltwhistle, Hexham, Kendal, Newcastle, Workington and Whitehaven. The year 2014 saw the club proudly celebrate its 40th anniversary.
