Worthing High School has hosted a Young Samurai event with Chris Bradford.

Chris showed students, teachers and librarians how he trained in martial arts and personal protection to write his incredibly popular Young Samurai and Bodyguard series. He showed the class some basic techniques (kihon waza) with his Samura Sword (Katana), which had all students transfixed.

Mrs Phelan, the learning resources manager, said: “The book signing queue was nearly out of the door and this shows how much these events inspire students to read, a great start to World Book Week.”

Worthing High School was pleased to be joined by other local schools, who commented it was one of the best author visits they had seen.

To celebrate World Book Day, Worthing High School’s English department decorated their classroom doors with book themes, one of the doors was decorated with the Young Samurai theme. Chris was invited up to see it and he said that he loved it.
