The Cobra Ju-Jitsu Club Skegness held their presentation night with the Deputy Mayor of Skegness, Coun Maggie Grey, presenting the awards to the students.

The parents were entertained by the juniors’s Red group showing their mixed skills of karate, judo and the first seven Cobra ground moves.

The Yellow group showed how to protect their rucksack when taken to the floor, followed by an arm bar drill.

This was followed by the seniors who displayed traditional ju-jitsu, followed by sticks and knife defences.
