BUXTON’S University of Derby campus hosted a martial arts workshop at the weekend.

During the event, which was organised by the university’s Sports Programme Leader and Martial Arts expert Charles Spring, visitors were able to try out seven traditional Japanese Budo (martial arts) at the Dome campus.

The Budo on offer included Aikido, Iaido (sword drawing), Judo, JuJitsudo, Karatedo, Kendo and Kobudo (old martial ways). The event was opened by a traditional display of Japanese archery and a full array of Japanese Samurai armour was also on display over the weekend.
