A Bury St Edmunds based martial arts instructor has moved his sessions online during the current lockdown.

Billy Wappett, 62, owns the Fighting Fit club in Tollgate Lane and trains people of all ability
levels.

He said: “You’ve got one who comes along who is getting bullied at school, one who doesn’t step forward a lot and wants their confidence built up, one who doesn’t like exercise at all so we give them a fun way of doing things.
