£80raised of £1,000 target by 7 supporters

    Weʼve raised £80 to help fund our Karate team competing in the 10th annual World Karate Championships in October 2018.

    Stockport, UK
    Funded on Wednesday, 29th August 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Our students are competing in the 10th World Karate Championships in Manchester this October. Our team is highly skilled and successful - over the past three years the team has returned with 105 World Titles.

    We are doing a sponsored "throw" event in May, where we will attempt to perform 2000 throws in 30 minutes. As many of us as possible will be taking part and we are asking for your support and encouragement!

    An example of a quick throw is shown in this video:

    Do you think we can make it? By my calculations, if a quick hip throw takes 2 seconds plus 6 seconds to reset, that's one throw per 8 seconds, meaning we'll need at least 9 of us performing throws at that speed consistently for 30 minutes in order to reach our target. Please show your support by donating!

    All funds will go towards the club (Bushido Martial Arts, Stockport) to directly support our students competing in the World Karate Championships. Funding will go towards uniforms, equipment, tournament fees, transport and training sessions.

        Great cause. Can I nominate people to be repeatedly thrown on the floor? :D
