The club held its first class under the direction of Sensei Steve Brown in 2005 at the APM Center in Cornwall.  In 2008 Sensei Carl Brydon (nidan) assumed the role of Head Instructor and classes moved to East Wiltshire Junior High in 2009.  In January of 2014 Sensei Brydon turned his focus to teaching kids, while Sensei Stephen DeGrace (yodan) took on the role of Head Instructor and runs the intermediate/senior class.
