IF YOU WANT to learn karate with a smile on your face, then The Thurrock School of Karate is the place for you.
Rex Ovire is a charismatic practitioner of the art. Then again, we would say that, he is well over six feet and is a black belt!
However, Rex has an infectious enthusiasm and is keen to develop his school.
There are two groups (a juniors and a seniors) that meet down at Drake Road Hall in Chafford Hundred.
Full details are on their website: http://www.thurrock-karate.co.uk/
We went down to a session to speak to Rex and talk about the club.
