Chris Bradford visits RBAI library October 14th 2010 Print

At last, after many failed attempts (don't ask, but the words volcanic and ash seem to spring to mind)  author of the Young Samurai books, Chris Bradford visited RBAI.Trained in karate and kickboxing, this samurai swordsman and former musician and songwriter hosted a really super event which was attended not only by year 8 pupils from RBAI but also by members of the SBALC schools including Fleming Fulton School, Aquinas, Hunter House and St Joseph's College. Pupils loved the samurai sword display, loved trying to sneak up on the ninja and couldn't wait to get their hands on 'The Way of the Warrior' and indeed join up for a martial arts class! One pupil said ' I never even knew authors were like this. I mean I just thought they sat at a desk all day writing stuff, I didn't know they did all this action and could be so much fun!'

Chris's latest book 'The Ring of Earth' has been short-listed for the Northern Ireland Book Award so log on to the website www.nibookaward.org.uk and see what everyone thinks of this book and then take a look at Chris's website to really get into the way of the Japanese warriors www.youngsamurai.com
