Meningitis UK Charity GrappleThon 2012

[Follow future GrappleThon events and arrange your own over at GrappleThon.orgFor the 2013 GrappleThon, go here]

In March 2011, some Canadian friends organised a charity grappling event, streamed live. Now that Gracie Barra Bristol has WiFi, I can follow suit: watch our event via this link!

We'll be grappling for 24 hours starting at 09:00 on Saturday 22nd September 2012, trying to raise as much as possible for Meningitis UK's search for a vaccine effective against all the many strains of meningitis. Please spare whatever you can (JustGiving works outside the UK too) to help prevent more deaths from this devastating disease.

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

UPDATE: I've done a full write-up of the day here, with links to videos. Seymour has written one too, here. :D
