MARTIAL arts master Jack Hearn is the oldest Judo Sensei in the UK - and at 92-years-old, he has no plans of bowing out. The great-great-grandfather aims to complete his 10th Dan – the highest possible accolade – after his 100th birthday. And the plucky pensioner says that 64 years of grappling and body slams has kept him young in body and in mind. Jack, from Cramlington, Northumberland, is one of the country’s highest graded players and has practiced the sport for 64 years.
