AN OLYMPIC athlete was a special guest at a martial arts demonstration in Nailsea.

Judo Olympian Emmanuel Nartey, from Ghana, delighted members of Nailsea’s Shidokai Judo Club by showing off some moves at the training event at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre.

The club was set up nearly 10 years ago and now has more than 100 junior and senior members.

Members are currently fundraising to pay for new mats for the group and have so far collected £344 by holding a bag-packing session at Tesco supermarket in Nailsea.
