Skegness’ Cobra Ju-Jitsu Club held their presentation night.

Deputy Mayor of Skegness, Coun Sid Dennis presented the awards to the students.

The parents were entertained by the junior Red group showing their karate skills, including newly-learnt roundhouse kicks and ground moves.

The Yellow group showed how they have learnt how to fight on the ground as they displayed kicking and ground ankle sweeps, twisting and anchor moves and more.

The seniors displayed three stages of a fight.

One partner posed as a good guy and the other was a bad guy.

Then punching skills were shown off.
