Grapplethon 2014

*** UPDATE - the whole Grapplethon 2014 event raised £4,511 for Kinergy (incl sales of my art print) ***

This year, my friend Can Sonmez, owner of the Slideyfoot blog and of Artemis BJJ, is hosting another 24-hour Grapplethon in Bristol on the 12th April 2014. See the poster for the address.

This year's event will benefit the charity Kinergy which offer professional counselling for survivors of sexual abuse and rape. The charity was chosen because of the important work they do and because fellow Artemis BJJ instructor Donal Carmody is himself a Kinergy counsellor.

If you fancy taking part, have a look at the Facebook Page and you may also wish to donate, or set up a fundraising page at Just Giving.

People raising funds will also qualify for a t-shirt version of the poster I made - see here:

Grapplethons are really great fun and if you plan on lasting the full 24 hours, or if you fancy setting one up yourself, then have a read of Can's handy Grapplethon guide.

Finally, art nerds may want to read my work-flow in creating the design for this event here on my art blog.

Thanks again for the awesome design, Seymour!

Also, I should probably note here that I'm only a co-founder of Artemis BJJ (Donal is the other co-founder). ;)
