One of the new clubs to become affiliated to the Students Association this year is the Martial Arts Club. The Martial Arts Club is in fact a student branch of the Rembuden Martial Arts Institute which is situated at 131 Manners St., Members of the Varsity branch automatically become members of the main club and share in all the faclities and training opportunities of the main club, but at a much lower fee. Whereas members of the of the main club pay $88 p.a. members of the Varsity Martial Arts Club (i.e. students) pay only $18 p.a., an enormous saving. The club offers instruction in Karate, Judo, Kendo and Iaido under the direction of John Jarvis who holds 7 black belts in Karate, Judo and Iaido. The club aims for more Judo and Iaido. The club aims more for quality in the martial arts than numbers of members but if anyone is genuinely interested further details can be obtained from C. O'Connor 893-617.
