Portchester Karate club trains onboard HMS Illustrious

Friday the 5th April was a particularly special day for the club as 18 members were able to visit HMS Illustrious in Portsmouth harbour for a tour of the ship and an unbelievable opportunity to train on the flight deck.

Sincerest thanks to RN for the opportunity to make this visit and we look forward to the next visit later on in the year.
