IT may seem unlikely that a man rated as the world’s most outstanding instructor of his martial art would regularly be passing on his expertise at weekly classes in Clydesdale.

But that’s exactly the case with taekwon-do Senior Master Les Hutchison, who runs Tuesday night sessions with black belt competitors at Forth Parish Church Hall.

“I’ve taken the classes in Forth for the past 15 years and thoroughly enjoy working with the black belts,” Les said.

Les, who coaches over 100 people across Scotland, has just been elected chairman of ITF’s junior and veteran committee.
