Last Sunday I was lucky enough to attend the Martial Artists Supporting Children with Cancer charity event at the awesome Twin Tigers Dojo in Scunthorpe organised by Lucci Del-Gaudio of Combat Ju-Jitsu in Nottingham. The event was attended by well over 60 people and numerous self defence styles and martial arts were on offer such as Jeet Kune Do with Rob Jarvis, Urban Krav Maga and Empower Self Defence. The event was for a fantastic cause and it was great to see instructors from different backgrounds and styles all teaching and training on the mat together, without any politics or differences in opinion, showing that this can happen!
The event was the third of it’s kind with others in Basingstoke and Walsall, and more are planned for the future, with locations including Leicester, Nottingham and Lincoln. I’d highly recommend getting down to one of these events as there are so many different styles on offer, new people to train with and just a generally awesome atmosphere for a generally awesome cause! Cohesion in the martial arts for a worthy cause such as this one is to be commended and goes to show that martial artists and self defence instructors from different areas and styles can work together and showcase their styles, free from politics when needed!
