We Kinergy provides counselling services to to men and women over the age of 16


In what's become an annual event, I'm organising another BJJ Charity GrappleThon (you can read about what happened last year here). It will be hosted by Artemis BJJ: we'll be raising money in aid of Kinergy, a local Bristol charity. Kinergy provide professional counselling to survivors of sexual abuse and rape, helping them move on with their lives.

Just like the previous two years, I will be forcing myself to stay awake for the full 24 hours, but this time I'm hoping to get in more than just a few hours of rolling. I'm going to try a different system for measuring sparring time, which should free me up to roll a lot more. :D

Please donate whatever you can spare to make a positive change (JustGiving functions outside the UK too). You can also donate via text message, by texting GRAP56 £1 to 70070.

Many thanks to GrappleThon sponsors, top BJJ artist and designer Seymour 'Meerkatsu' Yang (like his page on Facebook here), renowned BJJ apparel company, Tatami Fightwear and local fitness gym, Hit Fit.
