History of the Club

The club was formed in 1965 by Jimmy Oliver at the Sunderland YMCA. John Simpson (4th Dan) joined the club at the age of sixteen in 1970 and continues to run the club to this day, after taking over from Jimmy in 1991. The club is now based at the Lambton Street Fellowship Centre in Ford Estate, Sunderland.
