In a year that has seen Manvil Phillips earn his Helicopter Pilots licence, celebrate the birth of his and wife Alona's first son Gareth, he has still found time to gain the rank of 3rd Dan Black Belt in Wado Ryu Karate with the Preseli Karate Clubs.

Manvil has trained and taught with the Preseli Karate Clubs for over ten years and brings an added dimension, with his early Forces training, to his classes.

Anyone interested in training in the Maenclochog Area should contact Manvil on 07974019439. Full details of all classes are available from Chief Instructor Mike Blackborow on 07976526077.
