Mick Poil, who teaches Motor Vehicle at the College, also runs Combat Martial Arts (CMA) in Eastbourne and across East Sussex.

The free, 31-week course covers various disciplines including Judo, Karate, Jujitsu, Kick Boxing and Boxing.  Sessions focus on core strength and fitness and take place in the fully equipped full time gym in the town centre (The Martial Arts Centre.

Our ethos is ‘street effective defence’. Through my work with CMA I am proud to offer new opportunities for the public. New members are welcome along any week.”
