Rape is an issue that's almost certainly affected someone close to you, whether you know about it or not. It's something that has recently affected the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu community, and in an effort to respond in a positive way, some of us have organised this event. You can read about the work that Rape Crisis do here.
The BJJ Charity Grappleathon will take place on the 4th of May. People will be on the mat, 'rolling', for 24 hours constantly. During that time I'm aiming to get in 50 rounds of sparring - that's five minutes a time, or a whole lot of getting armlocked. I've done a marathon, and I'm pretty sure this is going to be tougher.
