At The Lights, lacrosse is played to “Lacrosse 5s” rules – mixed, non contact, 5-a-side rules on a basketball court. The format is ideal in both social and competitive environments. Lacrosse! Play it, live it, love it!

You’ll find Judo, Karate, jiu-jitsu tae kwon-do and mixed martial arts on offer
– with experienced instructors, whatever your level of interest.
The techniques of judo are studied where both children and adults learn how to fall safely, how to throw, how to pin down and for adults only how to strangle and armlock. Some of the theory behind the moves, to ensure safety, is also taught to the student. Safety is considered paramount. All students learn the Japanese name for each technique, and they practise in a relaxed and non-competitive way (randori). The philosophy of judo: to make use of the fitness (mental, physical and emotional) and knowledge attained through your practice by putting it to use to contribute to the community. There is also the study of the history, aims, purposes and moral code of judo, including the nine values. All of this adds to your life
experience to make you a stronger person who can be of real help to others.
