David is ju-jitsu master at 73

AFTER four years of hard work and dedication, 73-year-old David Powsney has achieved a fifth Dan Black Belt in ju-jitsu. He is now classed as a master in the art.

Sunnybank-based David converted his garage into a small dojo and enjoys teaching the younger generation the art of ju-jitsu.

Wife Joan said: "He started when he was 53. My son Howard wanted to try it, but that didn't last long, and David carried on.

"When I first met him, he was involved in amateur wrestling, weight lifting, running and going to the gym! He's a very fit person."

David also has a daughter, Jennie, and five grandchildren.
