Cambridge Academy Senior Instructors, Ollie Batts and Julie Gabriel were honoured with a surprise presentation as the club celebrated its 20th birthday on 1st July 2009. Ollie and Julie set up the club in 1989 and have since worked tirelessly to help their students develop and to promote the core values and diversity that martial arts offer.
Members organised the surprise presentation at Coleridge Community College gym, following our wednesday evening class. They produced special celebration t-shirts, and even persuaded a Cambridge Evening news photographer to go along to class, pretending to be an “interested member of the public”.
