Hi all my fav people! :D

As some of you know, I started practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ (giggle away Lau!)) about 10 months ago and have kindly been adopted into the Gracie Barra Bristol family (each and every one of them is mega lovely!). If you're not familiar with BJJ,  it's a combat sport closely related to Judo but which emphasises submission rather than throwing.

To raise money for Meningitis UK we're taking part in a "Charity GrappleThon".

We will grapple for 24 hours, from 9am on Saturday 22nd September until 9am Sunday 23rd September.  Even though I'm a fully-fledged ninja, 24 hours of continuous sparring would be quite a challenge so we will be taking shifts of two hours each.

As a bonus (and because I know you guys love to torture me and see me sweat), for every £50 that's donated, I'll grapple an extra hour!

My fate lies in your hands - help me in my mission of self-punishment. No amount is too small ^_^ ♥ 

Oh and it will be streamed LIVE! Chizzeck it out via this link :D



  • We're gonna be famous!! :D
