Great Britain Olympic Judo representative and Celebrity Big Brother finalist, Ashley McKenzie is holding a judo master class at Bracebridge Heath Village Hall on Sunday 22nd May.
London-born Ashley visits the Bracebridge Judo Club once a month to pass on his skills to local youngsters who stand in awe of him.
Barry Cooper, club spokesman and close friend of McKenzie said:”Ashley is an inspiration. The kids and parents love him.
“It’s a real pleasure to have Ashley come along and help develop the skills of our youngsters.”
The club boasts a membership of over 200 youngsters in what is still unfortunately classed as a ‘minority’ sport.
