Martial arts – an education in life

MARTIAL arts expert Alex Thomson dropped into the Pulse 98.4 studios to share the karate ethos with Phyllis Joyce and me on our weekly Talk To Phil & Dave Show.

He also shared some street self defence techniques with school pupils from Barrhead High School who are working on a mental health projects.

Everyone agreed it was a great experience to meet Alex – and it looks as though he has struck up a lasting relationship with the school.

Listen here to his interview on our radio programme in which he talks about martial arts as an education in life – not just a sporting activity.
