DUNGANNON Council has been told of concerns about some types of martial arts.
During a recent sub-committee meeting, one councillors said he had been approached by a concerned parent regarding some providers of the sport apparently encouraging young adults or children to get involved in Cage Fighting.
A minute from the meeting hears further issues being raised.
“The Member also raised concern about these events being held where semi-clothed young females are going around the ring holding billboards.
“Complaints have been raised by some female spectators who feel intimidated by all the jeering at these young ladies by the male audience.”
In response to the concerns raised, the council’s Director of Development advised that discussions with the clubs involved can be arranged to highlight the issues.
