Hemel Martial Arts

Hemel Martial Arts is a totally independent group run by professional fighter Denniston Sutherland, whose goal is to see people get fitter and live better, healthier lives.

With around 40 members, ranging from six to 55 years of age, Hemel Martial Arts provides the opportunity for them to have somewhere outside the workplace and home to unwind in a safe environment.

If Hemel Martial Arts were to be awarded the Community Sports Awards grant they would be able to purchase new equipment and increase the size of their gym space in order to help more people in the local community.
