HEBRON SCHOOL OF Martial Arts Supports Buddy Bear Children

april2012.jpgMegan Sutton, a student at the North West College in Omagh was so impressed with the work of the staff of the Buddy Bear School in helping children with cerebral palsy that she asked her friends at the Hebron School of Martial arts run by William Ferry, a martial arts champion to help raise funds. Megan like many other students was on work experience in the Buddy Bear School. William Ferry, Chief coach invited Brendan McConville, Chairman and Buddy Bear to visit the Hebron School of Martial Arts to meet some of the experts and future experts in the art of self defence.

William and his sons, John Henry and Stewart are experts and have the medals and trophies to prove it. William, who is the trainer in addition to his many trophies, has an award for Fighter of the Year Excellence award. One could not be impressed by the dedication and determination of the members of the club to achieve excellence in martial arts. The members put on various displays to show the skills involved in both attacking and defending. “It is great that ladies like Megan and Clubs such as Hebron School of Martial Arts are doing their best to help keep the only Conductive Education School open in Northern Ireland when one compares it to the UK where it trains teachers to become Conductors to teach children with cerebral palsy”, said Brendan.

We need sponsors to help. One of the fighters at the forth coming Martial Arts Competition to be held in the Cohannon Lodge, on Saturday 14 April 2012 is sponsoring Buddy Bear Children Sponsorship forms may be obtained from any of the members of the Hebron School of Martial Arts or thwe Buddy Bear Trust School in Dungannon phone 07867786804 or by email from
